34 SWEET CORN AND CAPSICUM PALAV

Sweet Corn and Capscium Palav(Pulao)


Blogging Marathon(Group 1) - Day 1

Have seen Blogging Marathon going on in Srivalli's blog for sometime and had been thinking to join sometime and when she announced it this time, I immediately sent her a mail and here I am with a group of 12 bloggers going to blog daily for the next 7 days depending on the themes chosen by each one of us. For this Marathon I have chosen " Seven days of Rice".


For the first day of the marathon am posting a simple and delicious rice prepared from corn and capsicum.

Whenever I make some simple rice or ghee rice , I usually add some green peas. For a change tried addingsome sweet and corn capsicum. Everyone at home loved the taste and also was very colorful. Can serve itwith any raita or some spicy kurma or egg masala.


Rice - 2 cups( have used Basmati)
Onion - 1 large( chopped length wise)
Green Chillies - 4 slit long
Ginger and garlic - 1 tbsp
Sweet corn - 3/4 cup
Capsicum - 2 small or 1 large( chopped thin lengthwise or cubes)
Mint Leaves - a handful( just for some flavor)
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Water - 3 cups
Salt as needed
Oil or butter - 2 tbsp

Spices
Cumin seeds - 3/4 tsp
Cardamom -2
Clove -2
Cinnamon -1
Bay Leaf - 1
(can also include others like star anise, javathri....)


Wash and soak rice for 20 - 30 minutes.

Heat oil/butter in a pan and all the spices. Wait for few seconds and add chopped onions. Fry till
transculent and add green chillies and ginger and garlic paste. Saute for a minute until raw smell
leaves. Next add mint leaves and saute for a minute and then add chopped capsicum and sweet corn. Saute
for 2 - 3 minutes and remove. Cool. Add this masala to the cooked rice. Also add salt, coconut milk and
water and cook in a rice cooker till done or on stove top until rice is cooked.

See what other bloggers of the group have been cooking for the marathon.
