Plantain Corn Rice / Raw Banana Corn Rice / Lunch Box Recipes

Life has become very busy n hectic, starting from this year... Continuous travel and guests filled in our home one after the other for their holidays... Enjoying every minute but unhappy that I am not able to concentrate on blogging. Planning to manage time so that I will not miss my virtual friends:)
And coming to today's recipe...After a long time tried this innovative delicious lunch box variety today and served with onion raita and chips. Had one bowl of cooked basmati rice in my fridge, so used that flavorful rice to prepare this plantain corn rice. Instead the same can be tried with the boiled rice or raw rice. But adding basmati rice gives a yummy briyani flavor. Very simple recipe and perfect for kids.




Ingredients:
  • 1 Big Plantain / Raw Banana
  • 1 Onion, Finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Corn kernels, frozen
  • 2 Green chillies, sliced
  • 1 1/2 Cup Rice, cooked ( Basmati )
  • 2 Tbsp Oil or ( 1 Tbsp Oil and 1 Tbsp ghee )
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 2 Star anise
  • 1/2 inch Cinnamon
  • A pinch of Turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp Ginger - Garlic paste
  • Few Mint leaves
  • Salt to taste

Method :
  • Steam the raw banana and peel the skin.
  • Now grate the raw banana and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the bay leaf followed by the star anise and cinnamon.
  • Add the chopped onions and mint leaves.
  • Fry them for a minute and add the ginger-garlic paste.
  • Fry till the raw smell of ginger-garlic paste goes off and then add the green chillies.
  • Mix well and add the grated raw banana.
  • Add the corn, salt and turmeric powder.
  • Simmer the flame and cook for couple of minutes.
  • Now add the cooked rice and mix well.
  • Simmer for another couple of minutes and garnish with the mint leaves.
  • Remove from the flame and serve hot.



Serving Options :

Serve hot with Onion Raita n Chips.
