Today I got up really late, became very lazy too and i was still sleepy so just sat doing nothing till 12 o'clock. I was not in a mood to cook our normal food rice and curry. I can not sit long like (idol) idle. I had some boiled corn in the fridge, wanted to use it today itself because i had kept it a few days ago and i didnt want to keep till it gets smelly. At 12.15 i started my lunch preparation this way... Wow with garlic pickle, but my baby likes dates pickle.


Biryani rice - 1 cup ( i used small grains )

Carrot, Cabbage, Cauliflower - 1 cup, all chopped

Boiled corn - 1/2 cup

Cardamom - 1

Clove - 1

Cinnamon Stick - 1 small piece

Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Green chilly - 2, slit

Ginger - 1 inch piece, crushed

Garlic - 3 pods, crushed

Onions - 1 big and 1 medium

Bay leaf/ tej patta - 1, torn

Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp, finely chopped 

Salt - to taste

Vegetable oil / Ghee - 3 tbsp


Wash rice, drain and keep aside. ( For the better result Soak rice for 15-20 minutes)

Chop big onion in small pieces and make thin slices from the medium onion. 

Heat oil in kadahi.

Fry onion slices on high flame till dark brown. Remove and Keep aside.

In the same kadahi splutter jeera.

Add cardamom, clove, cinnamon stick, crushed ginger and garlic. Saute for a min.

Then add slit green chillies, chopped onion and one torn piece of bay leaf. Stir well till onions are translucent.

Now add chopped vegetables and boiled corn, stir again for few minutes.

Then add drained rice and stir for another 2 minutes.

Now add 2 cups water, torn bay leaf, salt and a tbsp ghee. Give a stir, allow to boil.

Once it starts bubbling, reduce the heat to minimum, cover and cook till done. 

Finally add coriander leaves and garnish with browned onion.

Serve with any raita or pickle.
