Sweet Corn Pulao/Pulav

Sweet Corn pulao/ Pulav is the quick, easy & tasty pulao. It's one pot meal & you can make it quickly in the morning for office goers / you can pack this as lunch for your kid. 

Last week , i bought this fresh sweet corns from the farmer's market. Usually i make sundal, this time, i want to try something different, so searched it on google & found this rice as interesting. But i hesitate to try this, I doubt that corn will make the rice as sweet. But yesterday, keep my doubts aside & give it a try, the result was amazing. To my surprise, the sweetness from the corn & hotness from  the chili & pepper powder compliments very well. Ghee & pepper powder gives great flavor to this rice.


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Sweet Corn - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 small
Green chili - 2
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - few
Water - 2 cup
Salt - as needed (1/2 tsp approx)

To Temper

Ghee - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1/4 inch piece
Cloves - 4 
Cardamom - 1
Bay leaves -1


First soak the rice for 15 mins. In the mean time, cut the onion into thin slices, slit the green chili and keep everything ready

In a pressure cooker, heat the ghee, temper the ingredients listed under "To Temper" & then add onion & green chili & saute them well.

Once onions are translucent, add the ginger garlic paste & pepper powder , saute it well. Then add corns and give a quick stir and add water.

Once the water comes to boil, add the rice, coriander leaves & close the lid & put on weight. Cook it for 3 whistle.

Once pressure released , fluff it with fork & serve it with your favorite curry.


  • Adjust the spicy level according to your taste.
  • Recommend to use ghee instead of oil. It gives great flavor
  • Even you can drizzle few drops of ghee while serving.
  • Any north indian curries goes well with this rice.
