Total Time: 45 mins

Spiced Corn & Rice Pilaf

This corn-flecked rice pilaf has a distinctive Indian flavor, thanks to the addition of cumin seeds, cinnamon and cardamom. It makes a delicious accompaniment to grilled meats and poultry.


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 3-inch cinnamon stick
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown basmati or long-grain brown rice
  • 2 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons hulled pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels, (from 2 ears) or frozen


Step 1
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add cinnamon stick, cumin seeds, cardamom, salt and rice; cook, stirring often, until spices are fragrant, about 1 minute.
Step 2
Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
Step 3
Meanwhile, toast pumpkin seeds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
Step 4
When the rice is ready, stir in corn, cover and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick. Fluff the pilaf with a fork and fold in the toasted pumpkin seeds.
