Sweet Cup Corn with Fresh Garlic-Cilantro Butter

Author Notes

Cup Corn is a very common street food in India and comes in so many versatile flavors, none of which I remember really! So my recipe pick for the day was a pretty much a free-hit since I went with my instincts and literally dropped all the seasoning I thought would jive well together. Pack it up in a take-away container and you have an awesome road trip-friendly snack that would keep you away chips and all that unhealthy on-the-go food! —Vaishnavi Kandhadai
