Corn Pulao Recipe|Sweet Corn Pulav

Corn Pulao Recipe/Sweet Corn Pulav Recipe-Corn has been my big time favourite since childhood.Only in the recent days, we come across the American sweet corn which is so fluffy, big and easy to cook.During childhood, we get corn(Makka Cholam) and all that we would do is pressure cook for a long time and eat after sprinkling salt or toast it in open fire and have it.In North India, the sight of cooking corn in open fire is very common.It is one super filling and yummy food.I would suggest you use the local corn kernels if you often cook corn instead of using American Sweet Corn.The below Corn Pulao Recipe was one of my earliest trials(June 2015).I couldn’t upload because I didn’t click a decent final picture.The below images might vary because of this.Come let’s check out Corn Pulao Recipe.
