3. When the rice is cooked and slightly sticky, season to taste with salt, then replace the lid and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
4. Add the baby corn to the potatoes, season with the salt and pepper to taste, then cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the sugar, broccoli and red pepper and cook for 2 minutes more or until the vegetables are tender.
