Cup Corn - Healthy snack

I love grilled corn on the cob with chilli powder, salt and lemon juice rubbed on it. Just the thought of it is making me drool. I dont have gas stove here and i tried grilling it with the electric griddle that i have. It took so much time that i lost my patience and interest in it and i settled for this :) This is super good too and it's so easy to fix it. I dont think it even qualifies as a recipe :-)
There was a fruit shop in the same complex where my folks lived until a year back. They had a chaat shop attached to it and they used to sell this and i tasted cup corn the first time there and it was yummy. I dont know if this is exactly how they make it, but all of us liked it and i continue to make it the same way. This makes a great evening snack.


Ingredients :
Corn - 3 cups (approx)
Red chilli powder - 1 spoon (Adjust as per your taste)
Chaat masala - 1/2 spoon
Salt
Lemon juice (Concentrate) - 2 spoons.
Method :
Sprinkle some water and steam it in microwave for few minutes. They should be soft but not mushy. In a pan, heat little oil and add the steamed corn, chilli powder, chaat masala and salt and saute for 2,3 minutes. Let it cool down a little and then add the lemon juice and mix well.
I am sending this also to Sunshinemom's FIC: Yellow
