Pressure cook 1 cup of rice with one and 1/2 cups of water.  Add a 2-3 drops of oil in the pressure cooker before cooking rice and this will ensure that rice grains do not stick to each other . Add ghee in a pan and slightly toast sweet corn until slight brown in color.

Remove sweet corn and allow it to cool. In the same pan add olive oil and cook all the veggies by adding sugar. Cook for 3-4 mins. Now add pepper, sweet corn spring onions and salt and fry for a minute. Lastly add cooked rice and mix all the ingredients well. Adjust salt if required and cook for 2-3 mins.

My Notes:
Make sure that your rice is separate and fluffy.
Left over rice works best.
You can avoid vegetables and make it simple veg fried rice.
You can avoid butter tossing corn. I usually do that as buttered corn tastes great.
