The festive cooking is sans onion and garlic. Usually masala bhat or lemon rice is made, but one can try this version of pulao, it’s easy to prepare and ideal for any celebrations that you have. It is a corn and peas pulao made without onion and garlic, it tastes awesome, a cucumber in yoghurt salad or some curry goes well with it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1/4 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup green pea
  • 1 tablespoon oil + 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 cardamom
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon shajeera
  • salt to taste
  • water for cooking

To be ground to a paste:

  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1 inch ginger

Method:

  • Wash the rice and soak in water.
  • If you are using frozen corn and peas, you need to thaw them and put them in water.
  • Grind the ingredients under ” to be ground to a paste”
  • Take oil and ghee mixture in a pressure pan. I prefer cooking this way, it tastes good and I am happy, I am not eating much ghee! Add the spices to it, cardamom, clove, shahjeera and cinnamon, after a few seconds, put the green peas and then the corn. Let cook for some time.
  • Put the paste into it, saute for a few seconds.
  • Add the soaked rice into it. Saute it.
  • Put water and salt, give a stir.
  • Close the lid with the whistle. Turn off after one whistle.
  • Once the pressure is released, remove the lid and gently mix it with a spatula. Serve with gravy or curd based salad.

  1. This pulao sounds very flavorful. I vouch for the fact that onion and garlic won’t be missed in such flavorful dishes. Perfect for any occasion.
