4) Add ground paste and fry in the cooker container with above ingredients till the water content disappears.

5) Add washed Rice from step 1 and fry until the Rice turns a bit thick. Now add 2 cups of water to the cooker and stir for a min. Add Corn and Salt and close the pressure cooker lid and allow the contents to cook.

    I tried Corn rice for the first time, instead of corn i added Avarekkai. My husband loved the food very much. He kept on appreciating me. He said my dish was outstanding.

    I thanx you for this appreciation. You made my day!!

    Cheers

    • Wow – nice idea and happy to hear that it worked so well for you. Avarekkai is my favorite too. I use them often for Upma/Uppittu. Will try out your idea of “Avarekkai Rice” sometime. Continue to have great time cooking! – Hema

  3. Hy,

    i tried the Corn Pulao n it came out really well.. some times we get so bored with the same type of food habits n do not want to try something strange or new but when we are familiar with all the ingredients used in any recipe n its always available in the kitchen, it is more easy to go for it. Corn Pulao is easy, quick n filling. It also looks very tempting once cooked. I m going to try some more recipes from your basket.

  4. Truly genuine, changed my opinion completely, never expected something sweet to blend with spicy pulav so well.
