Tried and tasted by Nivedita
I am not so good, when it comes to rice preparations. But, now after coming to India, I am trying to do new experiments with rice.
One more reason is, I need to send lunch box to my daughter to the school, as she stays in the school for 6 hours. So rice is the best food to eat faster than chapati. And fast food or junk food is not allowed in her school. Even bread, noodles is not allowed. So in these two months I have
tried almost more than 10 rice varieties and surprised that even I can do it!!!!
Here is the recipe for Green corn rice,
Long grain rice(or normal rice) - 1 cup
Onion - 1 big chopped lengthwise
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Green chilly - 2 or 3 finely chopped
Methi leaves - 1/4 bunch cleaned and washed(optional)
Tomato - 1 big chopped
Fresh coriander - 1/2 bunch, cleaned and washed
Pudina - 1/4 bunch, cleaned and washed
Fresh, frozen or canned corn - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
Wash and soak the rice for 2 minutes. Remove the water and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a cooker. Add onion and fry till golden brown. Add ginger-garlic paste, green chilly and tomato. Saute for 2 minutes. Now add chopped green leaves mix properly. Now goes the corn and rice. Fry it for two minutes. Add salt and hot water till the rice is covered. Do not add more water.
Close the lid of the cooker and wait for one whistle. Open the lid, when cooker is ready(When it allows to open!!)
Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with raita or papad.
