Corn Snack

I discovered loads of new foods and snacks on this past trip to India and one of them is the infamous corn in a cup! Served hot in many flavours that include chinese, chilli, garam masala, and chaat, this is a quick and easy snack that can be savored at home too! First time I had mine was at a mall in Bangalore. Loved it! And then had it in Bandra and various places in Mumbai. After coming back home, I decided to grab a can of corn at the grocery store and decided to make it at home - makes great college food!

Ingredients: (for a one time snack)
Half a can of corn - approx 8-10 oz
1-2 sp chilli powder
1-2 sp garam masala
1-2 sp chaat masala
1/2 sp black pepper powder
Salt to taste
Some oil or butter ( whichever you prefer)
Coriander to garnish
Finely diced onions (optional)

Method:
1)Take the oil - a very little amount in a pan.
2) Add all the ingredients except corn to it.
3)Sautee the onions for a little while. If you want to retain the crunchy taste of onions, dont sautee for too long
4) Add the corn and mix it in and heat it for a minute at high heat.
5) Add coriander to garnish if you wish.
Serve hot with bread or just have it by itself!

Variations: You can skip the garam masala and just add the peppers and chaat masala or vice versa! There any number of variation you can add to this! If you can get your hands on some chinese masala, add that to. This makes a great starter or just a plain snack when you are really hungry!

Note: You want this dish to be a dry snack. Make sure you do not add water from the can or it will turn out to be soggy.

Published in the Chatpati Chutneys and Snacks category.

A Note to Remember: Good cooking is more about using the right ratios than using the right quantities. Each hand its own dish! Eat away!
