Masala Corn is a healthy, quick and easy to prepare snack. It is made from boiled Sweet Corn kernels by adding butter, lemon juice and a few spices.

The snack is loved by children as well as adults and is also more healthy and nutritious than fast foods and cookies. You can reduce the quantity of butter or not add it at all if you want to reduce the calories even further.

Masala Corn is a very popular snack in India and is served in stalls along roads and around eateries in various parts of the country. This snack is also a good way to satisfy night time food cravings.

Masala Corn is usually prepared by removing the kernels from fresh corn on the cob. However, it is a slightly more time consuming process, so I have used frozen corn kernels in this recipe, which are available for sale at almost all grocery stores.

To make Masala Corn at home follow the detailed step by step recipe with photos posted below.
