Masala Corn

masala corn

This post is long overdue. I wanted to post it on Mother’s day, but never got to it on time. My aayi loves to cook and serve people. She always feels happy watching people enjoy her food. There are very few things like icecream, masala corn which she really loves. So this post is dedicated to her – the best mom in the whole world.

When we lived in Bangalore, we frequently visited those small masala corn stalls which could be found near most of the shopping malls. Every time aayi visited us, we tried our best to take her there. I have tried making it at home here. I think I like this version the most.

2 cups fresh or frozen sweet corn
1 tea spn butter
1/2 tea spn chilli powder
1/4 tea spn garam masala
1 tbl spn (or as needed) lemon juice or 1/2 tea spn amchoor powder

Cook the corn in a little water (or steam it). Melt the butter, add corn. Fry for a min, add salt, chilli powder, garam masala (if using amchoor powder, add at this stage). Cook till corn is done. Then add lemon juice. Cook for few seconds. Serve hot.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 15-20mins


Updated on 6/15 : Updated the recipe to cook the corn before making dish. Made this dish with cooked corn and it came out really well. Thanks all for tips.
