Grilled Corn on Stovetop | Quick Healthy Snacks

Grilled corn without grilling?? Sounds interesting,right? This was the first time I tried out this way and otherwise whenever I buy fresh corn its usually cooking them in a pressure cooker with water and salt or microwave for 3 mins but this time I wished to have the charred ones that we usually find at street food stalls in India.Missed them badly!!That's how I recreated them on stove top,though you can always use the grill to get the same effect.This is a very simple recipe that anyone could try at home but on a gas burner stove.With the electric ones,I think you can place them in a pan and try.Probably may work out.Love this simple chatpata corn and a healthy snack too !!


Ingredients
corn 3 husked & silks(fibers) removed
chilli powder 1/2 tsp or as required
lemon juice 1 tbsp or as required
salt to taste



Method
  • De husk the corn and remove the fibers or silk.Wash under running water,pat dry.
  • Make a mixture using chilly powder,lemon juice and salt. (not thick,slightly watery)
  • Switch on the stove and place the corn on it by piercing the tail end using a metal skewer so that its easier to turn all sides.(I used my puttu kutti(mould)'s metal skewer)
  • You may hear cracks and pops in between(don't panic).Keep turning all sides evenly with the metal skewer intact.It may take approx 10 minutes to do one corn on medium flame.
  • Remove from fire and rub the chilly mixture.Bite through and enjoy !!

Servings~ 3 grilled corn

NOTES
* There is no specific amount for the chilly mixture.Use as desired.

I' m amazed. If I tell you that grilled corn with salt is part of my live, since I was a child. My mum always bought it and grilled at home.It esa summer time, but in winter it' s also sols in the streets and the leaves are used as a plate. Thanks for reminding me these feelings.
Can' t imagine eating it with chilli
Cheers from Valencia.
