Baby Corn Rice / Pulav / Pulao

Kids love variety rice over normal full meal with sambar, rasam etc.. My 2nd son is not a big fan of normal corn but he eats baby corn (not sure what's the reason). These days kids are having lunch outside due to their long hours at school. So when we are at home I try to do the dishes they like. I have done this rice many times but just got the chance to click
