Roasted Corn rubbed with spices and a dash of lemon is an irresistible treat!
Bhutta is one of my favorite snacks.In India, we enjoy this grilled corn during the rainy season,it is a very popular street food where the vendor comes with his cart that’s loaded with corn. He grills the corn on a small stove fueled by charcoal until it’s nicely charred. He uses a freshly cut lemon to spread a special spicy and tangy masala evenly all over the grilled corn and serves the hot corn on a bed of husk….
This year due to lockdown,we are gonna miss this fun…so recreated the same at home.
4 Corn Cobs/Butta.
1 Lemon sliced into half and seeds removed.
1 tsp Red chili powder.
1 tsp Salt.
1 tbsp Butter.(Optional)
Remove the corn husk and strings from the corn.
Roast the corn on the open gas flame (gas stove) at medium high heat. Move it around every 30 seconds or so, so the corn gets roasted evenly. You will hear some kernels pop. All the kernels will blacken to varying degrees.
Tip:Butter can also be rubbed on hot corn cob for additional flavor.
