Corn Onion Masala Rice ~ Easy Lunch Box Recipe for Kids

If there is one favorite among all of us, it surely has to be the corn. Except Peddu, all of us love this in any form. So it's only naturally that we always pick up the cobs during the vegetable shopping. Chinnu and Konda infact love to eat as such, just boiled without anything added. While hubby dear loves to have some spice sprinkled on it. 

Most times we never bother much, just snacking on it during evening. When I decided to do a theme, it's only natural that I run around trying to figure out which ones I can make. During one such times, when there were no takers for the boiled corn, I stored just the kernels and was wondering what else I should make. I decided to make some rice dish for my lunch and so it turned out that I ended up making this rice. Since it was one of those non veg days, I made it for Amma as well. She said it tasted very good and we decided we should mark this as must to do in future.
