Corn delights

Sweet corn on cob is one of my favorite summer essentials. Come July and the market is flooded with sweet corn on cob until late October. I like to enjoy corn on cob two ways: grilled~Indian style, and boiled.

Red chilli powder – a pinch

Grilled Corn

Remove the husk, discard the silk. Heat a stove-top grill pan or an electric outdoor grill and place the corn on the grill. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until slightly charred on all sides and the corn is cooked~20-30 minutes. Season with lime juice, a pinch of red chili powder, and a dash of salt. Serve.

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add 1/2 tsp salt to the boiling water. Break the corn on cob each into two pieces. Add them to the boiling water and let cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Drain and serve the corn immediately.

  7. Steamed CORN – yummy

    Take the fresh corn or frozen corn (sweet corn / babycorn) wash it and put for steam or can be put in pressure cooker without and weight and cook in very slow flame until its turned soft, remove it.

    Take a bowl, Add the steamed corn when its hot, Add butter to it+ salt+Lemonjuice+pepper powder and mix it well.

    If needed to be a bit spicy add chilli powder. It tastes Yummy..and its famous here in kuwait.
