  • 4 corn ears
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper powder
  • water enough to cook the corns


  • Remove the husk and silk from the corn ears, wash very well and keep aside.
  • In a large pan (where you can fit all corn ears), place the corn ears in a single layer and add just enough water to cook the corns. You do not have to immerse the corn in water.
  • Add salt, sugar and oil to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once the mixture starts boiling, keep the stove in medium heat, sprinkle the pepper powder and cook the corns for about 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Gently flip each corn ear and cook the other side of the corn ears for another 7 to 8 minutes until the corn ears are cooked and tender.
  • Transfer the cooked corns to the serving dish, enjoy the corns while they are still warm for best results!


If you use mini corn ears instead of regular sized ones, you can use 6 mini corn ears for the same amount of other ingredients.
If you are using frozen corns instead of fresh corn, the cooking time may slightly increase, you just need to make sure to cook until the corn is soft enough to your liking.
