Masala Corn

A simple, quick, spicy, flavorful recipe. Perfect for late afternoon cravings. Count this recipe in as an appetizer for your next party. This quick recipe needs no fancy ingredients but definitely is a fancy food and a crowd pleaser of all ages!

I used to love the masala corn that you get in those small stalls at Spencer's (Chennai, India). Masala corn is a simple snack bursting with lot of flavors.

That's my li'l one finishing up his non-spicy version of Masala Corn. Sorry about the shaken pic, though!
Basic Info
Complexity - Easy
Prep time - 10-15 mins
Cook time - 10-15 mins
Serves - 4

Corn on the cob - 4 nos (about 4 cups of corn)
Salt - to taste
Butter - 1-2 tbsp (More the butter better it tastes :))
Pepper (Freshly ground) - 2-3 tsp (or as required. I used white pepper powder for this recipe)
Lime juice - 2-3 tsp (or as required)
Chaat powder - 1-2 tsp (optional, I skipped this)
Cilantro - for garnish

Adjust salt & pepper to your taste buds.

Hold tight the corn horizontally on your cutting board. Run your knife firmly & carefully through the sides of the corncob and remove corn form the cob. Rotate the cob slightly and repeat with the next set of the kernel. Continue until the entire corn is done.

Steam the collected corn in a steamer until cooked.

To this, add rest of the ingredients and mix well, until butter is all melted & mixed evenly. Garnish with cilantro and serve in small cups.
