Delicious Corn in a Cup

Corn stands have started sprouting everywhere in Chennai. The phenomenon started about a year ago, and now it seems like they are all over. The most wide-spread brand is Hot and Spicy and they are little stands that are situated in busy malls, cinema houses and even on the street in front of supermarkets. Its pretty cool.



Its basically steamed corn that is then mixed with different spices. There's the plain one which is just a little butter, salt and pepper (which is also my favorite), the chinese, the masala (which is mixed with some garam masala) and there are a couple others.

Available in most busy places, its a great alternative to popcorn and an excellent snack!

That sounds like the perfect snack. I'll have to remember this tip for snacking on corn this summer.
