Rice, cooked with onion and spices, is layered with a tangy tomato-based corn curry, and baked, resulting in a truly tongue-tickling delicacy with a unique texture and mind-blowing flavour.
The Baked Rice with Corn Curry owes its flavour to the curry, which in turn gets its exotic richness from a paste of coconut, onions, spices and seeds. You can keep the rice and curry ready, and even layer it in a baking dish. But, it is better to bake the dish just before meal-time. Bake, unmold and serve immediately.
Enjoy as a One Meal Dinner and later for dessert pamper yourself with Malai Kulfi or Kesar Malai Kulfi .
