Baked Corn Rice

I have never tried my hand at baking rice. This is my first attempt and I should say, I am already falling for it. I just loved the idea of baking cooked rice, with different flavors and topping it off with cheese. Cheese is my all time favorite and I wont even have second thoughts if the dish has cheese. This is a very easy dish and yet very tasty. Its like a comfort food for me now, which can cheer me up and make me happy. This recipe can be adapted to any vegetable (whichever goes well with rice). Today, I only had corn with me. This works well with mushrooms, capsicum, green peas, potato. Non veg lovers can try this with chicken too. Here is the recipe now.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Sweet corn – 1 cup
  • Basmati Rice – 1/2 cup
  • Water – 1 cup

  6. Cover it for 5-10 mins until the rice cooks.

  8. Preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10 mins and bake the rice for 20-30 mins
