Notes:
  • I used Basmati rice. You can use other rice like ponni or sona masoori too. So adjust the rice water ratio according to the rice you use. 
  • I used frozen sweet corn . You can use fresh corn too.
  • You can add handful of mint leaves for extra flavor. 
  • If you are not particular about being vegan , then you can fry some cashews in a tablespoon of ghee and add to pulao, mix well and serve.
