  • 3 cups sweet corn, kernels separated from the cob
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp or more pepper powder, if you want more spicy, increase the quantity
  • 1/4 tsp salt, to taste

  1. Remove the sweet corn kernels from the cob. If you are using stored kernels, wash them in water.
  2. Heat butter in a deep-bottomed pan. Add corn kernels. Throw in pepper powder and some salt. Stir-cook for 2 minutes over medium-high fire. Add a very small amount of water and lower the fire. Cook, covering the pan for 3 minutes.
  3. By now, the corn should be dry and soft, yet still crunchy. Add lemon juice and remaining salt. Mix well. Turn off the fire.
  4. Buttered sweet corn is ready to eat. Serve and enjoy!
