Baby Corn Rice Recipe

This baby corn rice is slightly different from the Baby Corn Pulav that I had posted earlier and is more flavorful. Looks very much appealing too. Try this simple recipe next time when you buy baby corns.


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Water - 1.5 - 2 cups (adjust as per your soaking time and quality of the rice)
Baby Corn - 6-8 cut into small pieces
Onion - 1, cut  lengthwise
Curd - 1 tbsp
Red Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
Corriander Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt, turmeric powder, hing as per taste

To Temper

Bay leaf - 1
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon stick - 1 or 2
Oil - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp

To Grind

Onion - 1
Garlic - 5 or 6 cloves
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Mint leaves - 10

  1. Wash the basmati rice well and soak for 15-20 mins.You have to wash the rice well before soaking. If you do the reverse process the rice grains will break and the pulav will not look good.
  2. Grind the ingredients listed under "To Grind" to a fine paste by adding little water.
  3. In a pressure cooker, add oil and ghee and do the tempering with the list of ingredients mentioned. Then add the onions and saute till they turn translucent. Then add.the baby corn, corriander powder, garam masala, hing, turmeric and the ground paste.
  4. Saute until the raw smell goes off, this might take around 5 or 6 mins. Then add curd, rice, water and required salt and pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for 2-3 minutes and then turn off the flame. 
  5. Once the pressure gets released fluff it up with fork without breaking the rice. Enjoy with any kind of raita.
