Could this be steamed too?
You know, we get steamed "masala-ed" corn at malls these days. 35 bucks for a 100 mL glass full. What to say?

Yum yum! healthy and so very yummy!
But, do you really mean a tablespoon or more a serving spoon. I'm asking as I had this misconception about the quantity of tablespoon when I was in India and wasn't into baking. Sounds a little too small a quantity. Unless you made it only for Aryan, of course.

Yes Suki ..you can do that!

PG : Though I really dont know the difference between the tbsp and serving spoon , its was only for Aryan and that also as evening snacks , so the quantity was good enough!

a table spon is a spoon used to eat with. A serving spoon is bigger, but tablespoon if used generally is slightly bigger than the spoons used in India. But, while baking it means a measuring spoon - 5 ml. Whereas a serving spoon can be anywhere between 10 ml to 50 ml, depending on the size.
