This recipe is passed on to me from my mother and I love the use of fresh corn a lot in this recipe along with the green bell pepper and scallions. We like to eat this rice dish with Raita. It can be made with frozen corn also but makes it much better with fresh corn. —PistachioDoughnut

In This Recipe
Boil basmati rice with some salt and oil, exactly till it is well cooked. Do not let it get soggy at all. And let it cool so that each grain of rice is separated. You may even run cold water from stopping the rice from over cooking.
Take oil in a pan. Add the freshly grated corn mixture with the liquid also and sauté till the excess water evaporates. Remove it in a bowl and keep it aside.
Take oil in pan and add oil, cumin seeds, ginger chili paste, diced green bell pepper, and chopped scallions and sauté till it is well cooked and then add the corn mixture to it. After few minutes add the already cooked basmati rice , season it with salt and garam masala. Mix it well. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves and some fresh coconut (optional).
