Microwave Tomato & Babycorn Pulao

I love making pulaos through microwave oven since it doesnt take our time if we are busy..I prepared this tomato and babycorn pulao sterday for ur lunch and served this droolworthy rice with spicy potato fry..Both together tastes fantastic and turned out our lunch superb..This pulao goes for simple ingredients and gets ready prefectly within less than an hour and this pulao tastes marvellous served even along with papads or with hard boiled eggs...Even a bachelor can prepare this pulao easily using microwave oven..Simple and easy pulao which suits prefectly also for lunch box menu as well as for a potluck party thats y am sending this delicious pulao to Srivalli's MEC-Potluck Party and again to her 365Days of Microwave Cooking and also sending to Healing Foods-Tomato guest hosted by PJ, event by Siri..
