Masala Corn is a spicy and flavourful street-side snack prepared with sweet corn, lemon juice and a few Indian spices. It is one of the quick and easy dishes to prepare that gets ready in 10 minutes. It makes the best healthy snack option for kids after-school and tea-time snacks for adults.
Generally, masala corn is prepared with fresh corn kernels from the cob. However, to save time I’ve used frozen corn here that doesn’t need to be boiled and it takes a few minutes to thaw as well. Spicy and tangy masala corn, Chana Chaat, Sweet Potato Chaat, Bhel Puri, Dahi Papdi Chaat, Masala Puri Chaat makes an ideal snack to enjoy evenings. It makes a perfect after-school healthy snack for kids.
