Baby corn, young corn, or cornlettes, is a cereal again taken from corn (maize) harvested early while they are very small and immature.  It typically is eaten whole-cob included, in contrast to mature corn,  whose cob is too tough for human consumption.  Baby corn is eaten both raw and cooked.  Baby corn is most common in Asian cuisine.  In thai cookbooks, it is referred to a candle corn.

Now-a-days baby corn is so popular that we use it in various dishes like the salads, baby corn frys, stir  frys,  baby corn masala and today I would like to put up baby corn pulav which is so easy and tasty too.  I have not used many veggies other than the green peas.  Here it goes!!!!

What you need to have:

1. Basummati rice – 1 cup

2. Baby corn chopped – 2 cups

3. Green peas – 1/2 cup

Good to remember:

1. One need to use basumati rice for best results.

2. You can even use any other veggies of your choice for the dish.

3. One can even avoid coconut milk if not needed.

4. You may have to add more of garam masala powder since the powder I have used is very strong.
