Corn on the cob

We have lived in different locations in Bengaluru for 12 years now. I have very fond memories about each of the places. One of our most favorite area is Koramangala, and the beautiful parks there. The evenings spent in the parks with fresh air, lovely play area for kids, a little time for each other within the family was wonderful. One thing which all of us loved in common with the park time, from elders to us to the little ones is the corn on the cob sold by the road side shops there. The smell, the taste and the flavor, wow.. I wish I could go for a stroll now :)

This week, when I bought corn from the shop, I was filled with happy memories of our park time and decided to give it a shot. Everyone of us loved it and remembered the happy time we spend. We were quickly out of stock for corn. Next time around, I have to pick a whole basket.

Here is a lovely corn on the cob for all of you to enjoy in this winter evenings. :)

What you need:

  • Whole sweet corn
  • 1/2 tsp gingely oil
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tbsp chat masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon to taste

How to do:

  1. Heat a dosa tawa (iron tawa, not the non-stick) on the stove.
  2. Peel the outer skin of the corn, brush the corn kernels on all side with very little gingely oil
  3. Place them on the tawa, keep the flame on medium.
  4. Rotate them and cook them on all sides till you see black spots on most of them.
  5. It takes 10 to 12 minutes to cook.
  6. Mix the masalas and serve them with hot corn.
  7. Use the lemon to apply the masala on the corn. Squeeze them slightly as you do, to enhance the flavour.

I wish I could make another batch as I type this post. They were so beautifully cooked, juicy, crunchy, and yummy in all.

My son has requested me to make the green chutney that the road side shop makes for this corn next time. :)

A very healthy snack for kids.
