Wash the basmati rice 2-3 times and drain the water.

Add enough water and soak for about 30 minutes.

Heat oil + ghee in a pressure cooker or heavy bottomed vessel. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, cardamom, cumin seeds, black pepper, birinji leaf and saute for about 10-20 seconds or until nice aroma arises.

Now add the sliced onions, slit green chillies and little salt.

Saute everything really well until the onions turn to golden brown.

Add ginger & garlic paste and saute well until the raw smell vanishes.

Add the sweet corn kernels, green peas and saute everything for about a minute.

Add cumin powder, garam masala powder and sauté everything well another 30- 40 seconds.

Add 2 tbsp of finely chopped cilantro and saute well until the leaves shrink.

At this stage add 2 cups of milk + 1 cup of water and required salt. [Basmati Rice cooking ratio – 1 cup rice: 1.5 cup of water]

Let everything come to rolling boil.

Now add the washed and soaked rice, 1 tbsp of cilantro and let everything come to rolling boil.

Close with the lid and cook without whistle for about 15- 20 minutes. Make sure you open in between and give a gentle stir. Alternately you can pressure cook for 1 whistle.

Open the lid and give a gentle stir, perfectly cooked Corn Pulav is ready.

Finally sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot with any raita for your choice [Onion Raita/Cucumber Raita etc] or along with any kurma variety of your choice.
