Servings 3


  • Instant Pot


  • 3 cups sweet yellow corn (frozen, no need to thaw) (not corn on the cob)
  • 3 cups water (to boil)
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (optional)
  • 3/4 tsp  red chili powder    (cayenne pepper)
  • 1 tsp chaat masala  
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin     (jeera powder)
  • 1/4 tsp black salt


  • Place the frozen corn in the inner pot. Further add in 3 cups water to the inner pot. Close the lid on the instant pot and select manual/high pressure.
  • Pressure cook the corn for 4 minutes. Quick release the pressure. Discard the water and set the corn in a large mixing bowl.
  • Further, add in melted butter, red chili powder, chaat masala, salt, lemon juice, ground cumin and black salt. Finally, mix well and serve hot.


  • On a scale of 1 to 5 in terms of spice levels I would place this dish at 3, with 1 being low and 5 being high. So you can reduce, eliminate the red chili powder as per your spice tolerance.
  • I have used frozen corn kernels. Not corn on the cob for this recipe.
