Babycorn Pulao

Few years back, babycorns are quite rare to find out in Chinese markets, but now i can get fresh babycorns from chinese store very much easily which is nearby to our house, finally am buying everytime whenever i go to chinese stores and those fresh babycorns are ready anytime to get cooked..This time i want to make rice with those fresh and cute babycorns....While going through my blogger friend's i got hooked with Rak's Babcycorn Pulav and her beautiful pictures tempted me a lot to try out this delicious mild green pulao with babycorns which she tried out from Mrs Mallika Badrinath's cookbook, no doubt this pulao tastes awesome as Mallika Badrinath is one of my favourite among our Indian chefs..I rarely use pressure cooker to make out pulao, but this time i used my pressure cooker coz the original recipe went for pressure cooker which turned out this pulao fabulous within few minutes, needless to say that i was really happy to see my babycorn pulao turned prefect in pressure cooker.


2cups Basmati Rice
15nos Babycorns (as medium size pieces)
2nos Onions (chopped lengthwise)
4cups Coconut milk
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cloves, cinnamon stick & cardamom)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil

To Grind:
1cup Mint leaves
5nos Garlic
1inch Ginger
3tbsp Grated coconut
3nos Red chillies
3nos Green chillies
1/2tsp Garam masala powder

Soak rice for 15 minutes and i didnt fried the rice as per the original recipe..drain the water and keep the rice in a colander, meanwhile grind all the ingredients given in the list 'To Grind' as fine paste...Heat enough oil in the pressure cooker and fry the whole spices, add the onions saute until they turns transculent, now add the ground masala and fry until the raw smell goes away..

Add the babycorns,saute everything for few minutes(i didnt pressure cooked the babycorns as per the original recipes coz i like the crunchy babycorn bites while eating)..finally add the coconut milk and bring to boil..add the rice and salt and cook everything in pressure cooker with lid closed, cook in simmer for few minutes until the rice get well cooked....

Serve hot with any raitas...

  1. Dear,
    Love the pulao with Baby Corn. I think it would be have been more attractive if you had left the corns whole.
    I love the fact that you grind certain things to a paste for masala. I am a firm believer of grinding masala for a better tasting dish too. I put good use of my mixer and mortar/pestle
