Step wise pics Procedure:
- This recipe can be made with leftover rice or with freshly cooked rice.
- If you are using freshly cooked rice, let it cool off completely (to room temperature) before adding to the pan, this is to avoid stickiness of the rice grains.
- Basmati rice suits best, but any other rice variety works well.
- Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
- WFPB Option>> just add frozen sweet corn in a glass bowl with very little water / broth, put it in microwave for 3-4 mins. Add all the spices to the bowl give a thorough mix. Then add this to the bowl of rice. Mix well. Garnish & Serve. Of course, you will have to eliminate the curd.
- It stays fresh up to a day at room temp, but is a make ahead rice recipe, can be stored in the refrigerator and be warmed before serving.
- The sweetness of corn, crunchiness of cashew nuts and mild flavour of cumin / jeera, is what this rice recipe tastes of.
