Sweet Corn Rice – Simple and Tasty
I usually get bored with the sambar/dal that is made usually at home. So, weekends call for some different recipes and this weekend was no exception. Made this sweet corn rice which is absolutely simple yet very tasty and can be made in a jiffy. I totally love sweet corn and it is a big task to save the sweet corn for any recipe since half of it goes into my mouth during the preparation and the same thing happened while I made this sweet corn rice too. Like mom like son and my son also joined me in gulping these yummy corn kernels during the preparation of this sweet corn rice. However, I was still able to save some for the rice and made this amazing sweet corn rice recipe for the whole family. Everyone loved it and hence I add it to my successful recipes list. That is why this sweet corn rice recipe also finds its way into the blog here. So, do you want to make this right away? Then, just head on to the recipe and try it out.
