The ancestors of these peoples used corn for food 10 thousand years ago, but some excavations have shown that the culture existed even 55 thousand years ago.

Check out the top best and most delicious rice and corn recipes.

Recipe one “Budget”

This recipe is really very simple and will not make you spend a lot of time and money, because the products are in every kitchen, well, except that you have to go to the nearest store for a can of corn. The cooking process itself will take literally half an hour, and you will get a low-calorie dish.

We will need:

  • canned corn - can. Anything nearby will do;
  • rice – 250 grams;
  • bulb;
  • salt - to taste;
  • vegetable oil for frying;
  • spices - optional, but often rice is made with turmeric;
  • water – ½ liter.

Cooking dinner

Rice should be washed thoroughly using a colander. The less white water flows from the cereal, the more crumbly the dish will be. Heat the frying pan with a small amount of vegetable oil, while washing, peeling and chopping our onion. It is advisable that it be large or take two. Fry the vegetable in a frying pan until golden brown, at the end add about a third of a teaspoon of your favorite spices or turmeric, as we have already advised.

Boil the water, and while it is boiling, add the rice to the onion and mix everything well so that the cereal is mixed with the malo and spices. The water has boiled, pour the cereal and onions directly into the frying pan, add salt to taste. Now, under the lid, the rice will simmer until cooked, and five minutes before turning off the heat, add a jar of corn, which, of course, needs to be drained through a colander. Very simple and quick, you can serve grilled meat or boiled chicken breast with the dish.

Did you know? The corn we are used to will not be able to grow in the wild without our participation. The fact is that a crop can only grow from seeds, but if the cobs simply fall into the soil, they will not be able to sprout, but will rot.
