It was originally a pulao with green peas and baby corn.I did not have green peas on hand and had only 2-3 baby corns.So I added a carrot and a handful of sweet corn[frozen] to this and I feel it has only enhanced the taste of the final dish.More vegetables could be added to make this into a wholesome veggie pulao..so many options!!
While typing the dish,I felt this one is very similar to my regular Veg Pulao.The more the merrier..:):)
