Corn Chaat | Masala Corn Recipe

Corn Chaat or Masala Corn is such an easy one and you just need mins to mix up the ingredients and there you are with a nutritious, crunchy Chaat which is loved by kids and adults as well. It is a famous street food in India and whenever we go shopping in Chennai, will never miss to have this Chaat along the T-nagar roadside which would be piping hot and it was so heavenly to munch on it and wander about. Corn makes for a filling snack as well. Even a cup of steamed, salted corn tastes fine as is and my kids love it so much. But, it tastes even more great if made into this Chaat which you would relish. As with any Chaats, the Chaat masala, Black salt and Roasted cumin powder are the ones which transforms the simple Corn into a delicious Chaat.
