Pizza Cup Corn

Preparing kid-friendly snacks is a task in itself, at least in my house. I have a bunch that gives me heart attacks each time I cook. If it comes to sweets, it has to be chocolate or something based in chocolate. No, no, I shouldn't just peak it in, it should be the gyst of the whole thing presented. If it is spicy, I should not add any chilli in it. It shouldn't be fried, nor should it be big that they will have problems biting into it. When I hear their comments after preparing food, I really feel like banging my head against the wall. Our mothers had better children, I guess!!! Hehe...

But if there is one thing that goes so well with them, then it is a cup of corn, with some masalas in it. They just love it so much that they could finish cups and cups without realizing it much. Due to their interest, I now make sure that I have packs of frozen corn kernels in the fridge at any time and whenever they want it, I just make it give it to them, it's that easy. Just one way of doing it...

Pizza Cup Corn
Serves 4


Ingredients:

2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 blob butter
1/2 tsp paprika powder
1/2 tsp oregano powder
Salt to taste

Method:

Cook the frozen corn kernels in water till soft. Drain.

Add the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and add the hot corn into it. Mix it rigorously till the butter is all melted and combined well. Serve in ramekins and enjoy!!!

Notes:

If using tinned corn kernels, just drain them and use directly. But then you will need to melt the butter till nice and warm before mixing it in.

    Absolutely agree with you...if I prepare chocolate cake my son will tell no I don’t need this I need vanilla cake. Next time when I prepare his choice he will be asking something other.
