Corn Biryani

4th March 2012

I don't remember the source of this recipe, but, its one of those recipes that I lean on when I want to make something quickly. This recipe has a nice blend of hot and sweet - the hotness comes from the green chilies and the sweetness from the sweet corn.

Spicy - 3.5/5
Serves - 2

What you need -

Rice - 1 cup
Corn - 1 cup
Green chilies - 3 small finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tblsp finely chopped
Onions - 1 medium finely chopped
Cumin seeds - 1 tspn
Black Pepper - 3
Tej Patta - 2
Cloves - 3
Curd - 1tblsp
Garam Masala/Biryani Masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste.


Wash the rice thoroughly and keep it soaked in water for 15-20 mins.

Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add cumin seeds. When it starts to splutter, add black pepper, tej patta and cloves and fry for few seconds. Next, add onions followed by ginger and green chillies and fry till the onions are translucent.

Next, sprinkle some salt and garam/ biryani masala, mix it well and fry for a minute or so. Now add corn and again mix well and let it cook for few secs. Finally add the soaked rice (after draining the excess water), 2.5 cups of water and curd. Mix all the ingredients well and let it cook for 2 whistles.

Serve hot with papad and curd.
