There are some days when you are so tired that you want to pamper yourself, but without much effort. This quick, tasty homemade dinner will serve the purpose even better than an hour at the spa!

Corn is usually very friendly with all other ingredients; but it seems to be best friends with methi, because the duo dances together so perfectly in this pulao, which you will enjoy so much that you will want to keep making it very often.

After all, it is also easy to make. The key is to have it really hot… hot enough to warm you up even if it is peak winter!

If you wish you can team it up with Tamatar ki Kadhi to satiate you in a tasteful way when you are oh-so-hungry!
