Corn Rice – Chinese Style

Corn Rice - Chinese Way!

Corn Rice – Chinese Way!

Chinese is my comfort food. And so is rice. So Chinese styled Rice, with fresh succulent sweet corn thrown in, as you can guess, will be absolutely divine!

I made this for dinner the other day, and Milee and her imaginary friends(Doraemon, Ganesha and Emily) all joined in for a bite. The kid usually eats all her veggies with an exception for a few… like corn kernels and peas. A whole corn on the cob will be devoured with loads of butter and lime, but corn pearls in food is refused by the fuss-pot. So, I had to pick out the kernels from her rice and I got an extra dose of it in mine!

Scallions add amazing flavor.. so don't skip it.

I kept it simple, without adding too many sauces. Just a little bit soy and a dash of vinegar. With each bite, distinct flavors tickled the taste buds.
