This pulav is colourful, beautiful and will be great for lunch boxes, simple family potlucks or even for your next dinner party. The rice is flavoured with cumins, cinnamon, bay leaves, cloves and star aniseed. In addition, you can add some more spices. I like to have green chillies for this pulav because it produces the right amount of heat and flavour without being too overwhelming. If you like a more orange or red colour appearance for this pulav then include red chilly powder. This baby corn pulav  is one of my son's favourite lunch box dish. When I am cooking pulav or fried rice he really likes and he helps me in the kitchen. He likes fried bread cubes in the biriyani, so I have added the fried breads in this pulav also. As always, when cooking biriyani or pulav, I start cooking on a broad kadai and finish in the cooker. This method helps to produce the rice fluffy with each grains separate and prevents from sticking at the bottom of the cooker. Let's see how to prepare this Baby corn pulav with step by step pictures.

Put the rice in a large bowl and wash the rice in cold water for 3 times. Add 1 cup of water and let them soak for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, do the preparation work for the rice. Peel the garlic cloves, chop the ginger and green chillies. Cut the onions in half and slit the baby corns and then cut them into small pieces.


Grind the ginger, garlic and green chillies with little water.


Heat 2 tbsp coconut oil in a pan or kadai and add the following spices one by one (1 bay leaf, 2 cloves, 1 star aniseed, 2 cardamom, 2 cloves, 2 small piece cinnamon and 1 tsp cumins). Allow them to pop. 


Next, add the onions and saute for about 2 minutes on medium heat.


Now add the ginger garlic and green chillies paste. Stir it frequently to prevent the paste from sticking to the kadai. 


Then add the baby corns and continue sauteing for about 2 to 3 minutes. 


Next, add 2 cups of water and add the required salt. 


Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp garamasala powder. Bring to a boil.


Now slowly transfer the contents to the pressure cooker. Add the drained rice and mix them gently.


Keep the pressure cooker on low flame for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes switch off the flame and allow the pressure to settle down naturally. Now carefully transfer the cooked rice in a broad bowl or pan and add the lemon juice. Mix them gently and evenly.



Cut the bread slices into small cubes with scissors or knife and fry them with oil or ghee. Now add these fried breads to the rice and mix them gently. 


Serve it with a vegetable salad and potato chips. Adding bread cubes is optional. You can leave it if you do not like it. Kids enjoy these fried bread cubes so I have added in this pulav.
