Sometimes your kid's are hungry at 4 pm and you are really confused what to give them at that time. This masala corn is a super saver for 4 pm hunger. If you have corn kernels in your pantry, quickly you can prepare this masala corn. If you do not have corn kernels but have a sweet corn cob, then also you can prepare this yummy snack. One step will be extra when you have a cob instead of separated kernels.
Take the cob and make two to three pieces and whistle them in pressure cooker. Now take them out once they are cool. Hold the boiled cob pieces and shave the kernels from the cob using a big size sharp knife. Then follow the procedure (2 to 4) mentioned below. Warm the masala corn in microwave before you serve them.
Sweet Corn Kernels - 1 cup
Butter - 11/2 teaspoon
Chaat Masala Powder - 1/2 to 1 teaspoon (Adjust according to taste)
Black Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 teaspoon (optional)
1. I used separated corn kernels from the cob. Hence, pressure cooked the kernels for 3 to 4 whistles or until they are soft.
2. Now after releasing the pressure, open the cooker and drain the water.
3. Take the kernels in a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients on it and give a good toss.
4. Serve into small bowls. You can microwave them before serving so that it remain warm/hot.
