Masala corn recipe with video and step by step photos – easy to prepare tasty recipe of masala corn.

masala corn

Masala corn is a favorite with kids and most of us. for masala corn, ideally the corn should be hot or warm. It should not be at room temperature or cold. When I make masala corn, I steam the corn cobs in the pressure cooker and while they are still hot, remove the corn kernels. Then add all the spices in it and serve hot or warm.

Usually during the monsoons we like to have corn chaat or Buttered corn or this recipe. On occasions, I also prepare Corn pakora. I also at times roast the corn cob on direct flame and then rub it with a slice of lemon smeared with red chili powder and black salt.

This masala corn is not a recipe as such, but just sharing the method. you can always add your choice of spices or add less or more and make a lot of variations in the recipe.
