Corn Cup/ masala corn

Colors play a vital role with kids. With my son, a little discussion on the food being served prior to giving it to him also helps. It kind of excites is science...setting the senses on a roll..talking about it makes them drool and you may get some instant food grabbers. Few days back, when my little one was not keeping well..under the weather, his appetite had reduced significantly. I was contemplating pop corns but I felt that would fill him up fast but not satisfy my urge to feed him. That's when I thought of boiling the stocked corn kernels.
I started talking to him while preparing it...telling him how much I like the juicy bits of corn that I get at work, loaded with butter and chat masala.
He was interested in knowing what it was..I made a simple version for him and the masala one for us..when I heard a tiny voice...I am growing up..can eat masala...but dont make it too hot. 

1 cup corn kernels/ nibbles
1 tspn butter
1 tspn salt
1 tspn red chilli powder
1 tspn chat masala
1 tspn chopped fresh mint
1 tspn lemon juice (optional)
1) Boil the corn for 5-8 min until they are cooked
2) In a bowl, mix all the ingredients in the corn starting with butter. The butter should coat the corns well to hold the other masalas and also retain the gloss.
3) Serve
