Sweet Corn Peas Pulao

It was one of those days when my fridge ran out of vegetables and all that I had was frozen peas,sweet corn and a few basic things. With these bare minimum ingrediens all I could think of was  a quick pulao and  onion raita for lunch. The best part of preparing a north indian item,is it gets done quickly and with bare minimum stuff which are always with us in the pantry.

Preparation Time : 10 mins

Jain Version : Skip the ginger garlic from the recipe and follow the rest as is.
No Onion No Garlic  : Use grated ginger / ginger paste and skip the garlic paste.
