Sweet Corn Cilantro Rice

        Today for Day 6 of BM edition # 13 under the theme"Easy Kids Lunch Box Recipe ~ Rice" My recipe, Sweet Corn Cilantro Rice.  As the main theme was to cook any rice recipe under 15-20 minutes, at the same time it should be a kids loving recipe...this again a challenging task for me, So i picked my kids' favorite veg as a key ingredient and worked on it. Sweet corn is one of their fav, another quick and delicious recipe with lots of Nutrition n Flavor. I did not add much masala just simple seasoning n sauting with onion n ground ginger-cilantro-chili paste followed by sweet corn really turned out to a Filling n Delicious Rice. I am sure this recipe will liked by both adults n kids. Try this and let me know the result...Now to the recipe...

  1. Cooked Rice    1 and 1/2 cup
  2. Sweet corn  kernels  1/2 cup of more(fresh or frozen)
  3. Onion   1 meidum(finely chopped)
  4. Turmeric Powder   a pinch
  5. Lime juice   2 tsp
  6. Salt    to taste
To Grind
  1. Green chilli 4 or to taste
  2. Ginger 1" large piece
  3. Cilantro/corinader leaves 1/4 cup(roughly chopped)
  4. water   1-2 tsp
To Temper
  1. Oil    1tbsp
  2. Mustard seeds    1/2 tsp
  3. Urad dal    1 tbsp
  4. Curry leaves    few

  • Microwave or steam sweet corn kernels for 2 minutes and keep ready.
  • Grind ginger, green chili,cilantro to a coarse paste n keep ready.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add the tempering ingredients and fry till dal turns light brown.
  • And then add finely chopped onions and saute for a minute and  then add ground ginger-chili-cilantro paste,a pinch of turmeric powder and saute for 1-2 minutes or until raw smell leaves.
  • After that add sweet corn and stir fry for  a minute.
  • Now add cooked rice and mix everything well and cook covered in medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Then give it a gently stir and lastly add lime juice n some more chopped cilantro and turn off the stove.
  • That's it....Yummy n Flavorful Sweet Corn Cilantro Rice is ready.
  • Serve or pack to lunch box along with Potato fry/Fryums/Raitha.I served with Sliced Potato Fry.

If u want you can also add some Cashew nuts /peanuts along with tempering ingredients.
Instead of sweet corn, you can use Cooked Chickpeas/green Peas that will also tastes good, yes i tried the same with Channa or Chickpeas.
Adjust green chilli to yout taste.
Do not cook rice fully , cook only 80% and allow to cool completely before u add it to the masala...in this way u will get biryani/pulao like texture - separate grains.
