Butter Corn

This is one of the snacks I make for my kids, when they are back from school.
It is one of the easiest. I have taught them to make it for themselves also.
You need
Frozen Corn- 2 cups
Salted Butter- 2 Tablespoon
Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
Water - 1/3 cup
---> In a pan, add the frozen corn and water and keep the stove on a medium fire, and let it boil for 3 to 5 minutes, until most of the water is evaporated.
---> (you can do this in the microwave also, add little more water if you do that, cook for 3 minutes)
---> Add the butter and lemon juice to this and eat it hot...
(The only thing is the microwave dries it out and on stove top it is moist. So add more water and little more butter)
Tastes great on a cold winter day.
We first had it in Spencer Plaza, Chennai, India, and ever since my son became a fan.
He makes this on his own.
In chennai they make the plain version which is the one above, a chinese version (instead of lemon juice add soy sauce and some chili sauce), a chaat version (along with lemon juice and butter, add some chaat masala and red chili powder) and one more version, i cant remember. The smallest size cup was the bathroom cups they have here and it would sell for 70 rupees in 2002. We would end up spending 600 rupees there itself!
