- Give a quick rinse to the corn kernels using water. If you are using fresh corncob then separate the kernels or simply break the cob into two and pressure cook it. Boil the sweet corn kernels in water for 6-7 minutes or until they become soft. You can also microwave them for 2-3 minutes instead. Don’t forget to add salt while boiling them. Drain and keep aside.
- To make masala corn at home, heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan and add the corn. The cooking time is very important in this recipe because the corn must retain a bit of its crunch, should be moderately cooked and should not become dry. Butter can be substituted with olive oil.
- Sauté on a medium flame for 3 minutes. They will get a light brown shade and shiny glaze on sautéing. When corn is not in season, you can use frozen corn kernels.
