Being a working women I always prefer easiest way of cooking and packing food, so I love to prepare a variety of rice for our family lunch box. This rice is one of the healtheir, tastier, kids friendly recipe which can be made using pressure pan. If you complete the cleaning process of keerai, you can make this recipe so quick in the morning.

  1. Wash the basmathi rice once and soak in water till you prepare other items.
  2. Clean keerai well and finely chop it and keep aside.
  3. In a pan add oil, season it with fennel seeds, cumin seeds. Then add the onion, saute it till it turns pink. Add green chillies, garlic and saute well.
  4. Add carrot and saute for one minute. Then add the rice (filter the rice and then add) Saute the rice well till it mixes well with other ingredients.
  5. Add keerai, sauté for one minute. Ten switch off the flame. Transfer everything to the pressure cooker. Add one cup of coconut milk and one cup of water (depending upon the nature of rice)
  6. Add salt and pressure cook it for three whistles and switch it off.
  7. While the rice is being pressure cooked. Steam sweet corn kernels or boil it in water adding very little salt. In a Kadai add very little oil, saute the chopped capsicum with very little salt.
  8. When pressure resides down. Open the lid transfer the rice to the bowl, add one tsp ghee, sweet corns, capsicum and mix everything well without breaking the rice.

My Tip:

You can add sweet corns and capsicum even while sauteing carrot and pressure cook with rice to make it more quicker.
