Tea time snacks have always been pretty lavish back home. The cafeteria in my old company always prepare a wide range of snacks everyday in order to cope with the great demand for afternoon tea time snack seekers like me. Fried banana fritters, fried sweet potato, spring roll, Indian bread (roti prata), fish crackers (keropok lekor), layered cake (kuih lapis) were some of the local delicacies you can get during tea break, Monday to Friday, from 2.30pm till 4.00pm.
If you noticed, most of the tea time snacks back home are prepared fresh and served warm. This explained my cravings for something pipping hot. However chocolate, cookies, biscuits and granular bars are what I have in my kitchen cabinet. I persisted and continue to dig through my cabinet for 'gold nuggets', suddenly I spotted this small tin of sweet corn sitting lonely in the deepest corner of my food cabinet. Why not have a cup of steaming hot sweet corn as my tea break snack today?
|Classic Sweet Corn-in-Cup|
This quick snack only took me a mere 3 minutes to prepare. Just TWO simple steps, voila ... the sweet corn cup is done!
- 1 small can of sweet corn
- 1/2 tbs of butter (you may add more if you like extra buttery taste)
- a pinch of salt
Step 1: Heat up the sweet corn in microwave (900W setting) for 2 minutes
Step 2: Add in the butter and salt. Mix the sweet corn well until all the corn kernels are coated with butter and salt
My 3 minutes sweet corn in cup ... best enjoy while still warm! The combination of juicy and sweet corn kernels enriched with butter and seasoned with a light pinch of salt, may just be the irresistible snack for all time!
