Indian Flame Grilled Corn (Bhutta)
This flame-grilled corn street food is easy to replicate either on a grill or even on a gas burner in the kitchen
- 2 whole cobs of corn
- 1 lemon or lime cut into half
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp red Kashmiri chili powder reduce quantity to 1/2 tsp if using cayenne because it tends to be spicier
Peel off corn husk and fibers
Roast the corn on a medium gas flame or a medium hot grill (if you only have an electric stove, you can still roast the corn by covering the electric coil with a cooling rack used for baking. Then just place the corn on the rack and follow the rest of the instructions). Keep in one position for about 15 to 20 seconds and rotate. It should take about two to three minutes for the whole cob to cook.
Mix the salt and chili powder in small bowl.
Dip the cut side of the lemon/lime into the spice mixture and smear onto the roasted corn.
Squeeze some lemon on as you rotate as well to make sure that you get some tart flavors too.
