Experience the fusion of flavors with this yummy Sweetcorn Pilau Rice. This delicious side dish will complete your Indian meal at home.
We start with a base of fresh onions and garlic sauteed in a little low calorie spray until softened before adding in the fragrant basmati rice, frozen sweet corn, and enhance flavours with a blend of spices like cumin seeds, turmeric, and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Then to achieve that perfect balance, we cook in flavorful chicken or vegetable stock, infusing every grain with a rich flavor. All perfectly finished off with a handful of fresh chopped coriander.
