Spiced Chickpea, Babycorn Rice | Rice Recipe

Delicious rice recipe with chickpea and babycorn combination. Seasoned with fresh homemade spice masala.

This simple and delicious rice preparation is the first recipe which I drafted in my hand written cookbook. So its a hearty recipe to me. The masala I used here has a unique taste and that blends with any vegetable combination. I tried cooking with capsicum, brinjal, okra, everything works good.

Serve this rice with a cucumber raita or simply with a spoon of natural yogurt and some chopped fresh coriander/ cilantro, which acts as a perfect foil for the spiciness of the rice.
This colorful, appealing, protein rich rice is a perfect lunch box pack for a filling meal.

Preparation & Cooing Time : 30 Minutes
YIELD : 2-3 Serving


Cooked Rice - 2 cups(use any brand)
Chickpea(brown) - 1/4 cup Boiled
Baby corn - 6 no. slit,cut into four pieces
Salt To Taste

Gram Dhal - 1 tbsp
Red Chilli Dry - 5no.
Coriander Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Pepper Corns -1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp

  1. Wash and soak chickpeas overnight or an hour in hot water before cooking. Pressure Cook for 4-5 sounds or until soft cook.
  2. Wash and slit baby corn about 1"inch pieces and cook in boiling water till soft and firm with added salt.
  3. Cook rice (3/4th cooked) and spread in a tray with little oil applied over it to remove moisture content.
  4. Heat a fry pan. Dry roast ingredients given under spice masala. Cool and grind to coarse powder.
  5. Now heat oil in a non stick pan or kadai. Add cooked chickpea and baby corn, saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the pound masala, stir well.
  6. Now add in the cooked rice and mix well. Add require salt. Sprinkle some water over the rice and let it sit on simmer for 5 minutes to make soft.  Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. If possible with a dash of grated carrots.
  7. Serve with cucumber raita.


  • This masala powder goes well with any kind of veggie combination . So if you did not find time to cook chickpea and baby corn simply mix with rice and a bunch of freshly chopped coriander leaves. 
  • Add cashews to add more taste.
