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


                                                          Chopped baby corn & Green peas

 Ingredients of Seasoning:

1. Chopped onions – 1 cup

2. Bay leaf/Masala patha – 1

3. Cashews – a few

4. Garam-masala powder – 1/2 teaspoon(homa made)

5. Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon

6.Red chili powder – 1/2 teaspoon

7. Salt – as per taste

8. Coconut milk – 1 cup(just to add to the dish while cooking)


                                                                      Ingredients of seasoning

Ingredients of wet masala:

1. Mint leaves – 1/4 cup

2. Cilantro – 1/2 bunch

3. Garlic pods – 4-5

4. Ginger – 1/2 ” piece

5. Green chili – 1-2

6. Fresh grated coconut – 2 tablespoons


                                                            Ingredients of wet masala

What you do with what you have:

1. Wash and chop baby corn into lengthwise pieces and keep it aside along with green peas as shown in image 1.

2. Place a cooker with 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in it on medium flame. On heating add Tej patha/masala patha to it.  When a pleasant aroma oozes out, add cashews and fry it.  Add chopped onions and required quantity of salt to it and fry till transparent.


                                                Chopped onions being fried till transparent

3. In the mean time grind all the ingredients of wet masala in the mixer to a fine consistency.


                                                                               Grind wet masala

4. When onions are fried to transparent, add chopped baby corn and green peas to it and just give a stir .


                                                         Baby corn  and green peas being added

5. Once done, add grind  wet masala from step-3 to it  and stir into it .

6. Once done, add soaked, strained basmati rice to it.  Add coconut milk and the remaining(required quantity ) water to it and closing the lid of the cooker and cook for about 20 minutes on simmering the flame.


                                                      Coconut milk and water being added

7. When cooked transfer it to a serving plate.  Garnish it with tomato and onion slices or even with a salad!!! Yummmmmmm


                                                             Ready to serve Baby corn pulav

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.
