1) If you want a spicy Corn Rice, you can also add 1 finely chopped green chilli instead of pepper powder while frying onions. 

2) At final stage, garnishing with finely chopped coriander leaves gives a nice flavour. 

3) You can also skip onions if you want to prepare this recipe as NO Onion NO Garlic recipe.

4) Ghee can be replaced with butter or cooking oil according to your taste for Corn Rice. 

5) I have used Parboiled ponni rice, you can also use Raw rice or basmati rice according to your choice. But make sure that rice is cooked as separate grains and cooled completely before adding to corn mixture.

6) I have prepared a plain curd rice along with Vadu manga pickle. You can do seasoning and add veggies according to your kids taste.
