Corn methi pulao recipe | easy lunch box recipes

by Jeyashri suresh

Corn methi pulao, my sister gave me this recipe, a year back but some how when i have corn, methi will not be there and when methi  leaves are in stock, corn will not be there. Many times i forget also. She too asks me sometimes, as why i didn’t post the corn methi pulao. Finally during our India trip she told she will make this for me and asked me to click the pictures only. I happily agreed and took the step wise pictures. She used the small fresh methi leaves  but before i could take the final pictures a very good of friend of us came to meet me. So i didn’t click the final pictures but immediately after coming back from India i made this corn methi pulao and clicked the final pictures.
