Recipe Story

This is one of my favorite dishes. I remember mom roasting corn on the cooking gas on a rainy afternoon. The smell fills the air around you and it just waters your mouth. You can enjoy it any way you want. But I would definitely recommend the butter, and salt. My daughter is so much into corn that it is hard to displease her when this is being roasted. Kids can help dehusk the corn. A sense of accomplishment comes from doing chores in the kitchen and picky eaters are more likely to eat the food they helped cook.

Dehusk the corn and get them ready for roasting. You can do it out in the open on a grill or inside the house on a cooking flame.
The inside way is as yummy as the other one. Just put it on fire and keep turning until all sides look brown.
Once roasted on all the sides prepare to spice it up. The way I do it.
Take a lemon wedge and dip it in butter. Spread it all over the corn while squeezing the wedge a little. Next take a wedge and dip in salt. Repeat the process. Then just sprinkle black pepper on top.
Enjoy it warm.

Thanks for sharing. I do make the corn that way, little less often than the roasted one.

Hi shakti...U can also microwave corn on the cob. Dehusk the corn & put it in the microwave for 5 minutes or more until corn becomes very tender & juicy. You can rub in some butter, salt, lime or even amchur as per taste. Another method is to pressure cook corn cobs in salted water.
