PEAS AND CORN RICE WITH CHILLI CHEESE BOMBS

The corn and cheese give it a beautiful colour and flavor and the chilli and cheese gives it a nice kick to an otherwise non spicy bland rice.


PEAS AND CORN RICE WITH CHILLI CHEESE BOMBS

INGREDIENTS

Green peas shelled and parboiled
¾ cup
Sweet corn kerners parboiled
¾ cup
Basmati rice
1 cup
Jeera / cumin seeds
1 tsp
Oil
1 tbsp
Cheese cubes
2 nos
Chilli flakes
1 tbsp
salt
T.T.


METHOD:

1.       Wash rice and drain well.

2.       Heat oil, add in the jeera, when it crackles add in the peas and corn, sauté a little and add rice.


3.       Sauté on medium heat till the rice is transparent.


4.       Pour in 2 cups of hot water. Add salt to taste and simmer on low heat.

5.       Meanwhile cut each cheese cube into 4 pieces to get 4 mini cubes out of each.

6.       Roll them in the chilli flakes or press the chilli flakes on the sides of the cheese.

7.       Another method you can use is grate the cheese, add chilli flakes in it, mix and shape into small marble sized balls.

8.       When the rice is cooked switch off the gas, place the cheese bombs onto the rice and press it into the rice a bit.

9.       Cover with a lid and leave then in the hot rice. They will melt and become soft. You can also garnish with French fries on top if you like.

10.   Serve immediately with a hot spicy curry.
