Roasted Sweet Corn on the Cob Recipe

Corn on the cob makes an appearance in the street from April to September.

During the rainy days who does not love this subtle sweet, crunchy open fire roasted corn; with a drizzle of butter, squeeze of lemon, and sprinkle of spices that enhance the flavor.

The roasted corn cob is an all-time favorite from Delhi Roadside snack and I just love it and enjoy the rain while savoring the delicious corn. It is a healthy seasonal treat for its health benefits but when you add corn to your snacks and meal just control the portion or amount you eat.

In Delhi, it has been raining anytime for the last few weeks, therefore, I am buying vegetables from the local vendors who keep coming in our lane with their carts full of vegetables. Luckily today, one of the vendors came with his cart full of Corn on Cob and greedy me couldn’t stop myself and ended up buying 2 kg of them. Guess what? The boy was selling it at Rs.30 per Kg and he agreed to give me 2 kg at Rs.50 and I think it was a great deal and the count of the corn was 9 pieces.

Since it was early in the evening, I couldn’t resist myself from having corn. So, I ended up roasting a few of them. I enjoyed eating the roasted corn on the cob along with my hubby sitting in the balcony while it was raining outside and our evening became more beautiful.

In fact, we actually had a great time together after a long time as we had spent a good amount of time eating as well as clicking a few photos of the roasted Corn on the Cob.

Here is the recipe of the roasted corn on the cob:
