I had a huge pack of unused sweet corn lying in the freezer for months. I thought the best way to use it up is to make simple fried rice .I made this on a whim & it turned out just lovely.




1 cup long grained rice – cooked.

2 onions – sliced into long strips

3/4 cup – American sweet corn – fresh/frozen

1 tsp ginger chilli paste

1 tsp vinegar

1 tbsp soy sauce

Salt as per taste

2 tbsp oil

1 tsp red chilli powder




Soak the long grained rice in water for 15 minutes. Pressure cook the rice with 1 ¼ cup of water.

Once done, cool the rice on the plate with 1/4 tsp of oil on it… ( in order to avoid stickiness)

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok, add ginger chilly paste and fry for a minute or so.

Add sliced onions and fry till translucent.

Thaw the sweet corn and then sauté for a couple of minutes.

Now, add soy sauce, salt, red chilli powder and vinegar and fry for a minute.

Add the rice and mix well.


Serve HOT with tomato sauce or any other sauce of your choice.
