Spicy Corn On The Cob

31 Jul

Kalchina Jonna Potthu.

Corn is dehusked and grilled on all sides till dark brown. Grilled corn on the cob is then rubbed with chili powder and grilled again for few more seconds for one last time. It is then rubbed with lemon and served immediately. Also, use a knife to separate the corn kernels and serve in a bowl.
Makes: 1 Spicy Corn On The Cob.


Corn 1
Lemon 1/2 Piece
Red Chili Powder to taste
Salt to taste

Method of preparation:

Remove the husk and clean the corn.
Hold the handle and place it on a grill.
Alternatively, place the corn on a stove top with direct flame.
Keep turning the corn until all the kernels change color and are cooked.
It makes a crackling noise while its roasting.
Once done, remove the corn onto a plate, apply red chili powder and salt to the corn with help of a tissue.
Put the seasoned corn on the grill for one last time for couple more seconds to smoke the chili powder a bit.
Remove the corn from the flame and rub the lemon half all over it while lightly squeezing the lemon.
Serve spicy corn on the cob immediately.
Notes: Make sure to cook the corn on medium – low flame.

Suggestions: Roasting the corn on charcoal grill tastes better than one on the gas grill.
Variations: Also add finely chopped herbs once corn is roasted.
Other Names: Spicy Corn On The Cob, Kalchina jonna Potthu, jonna Pottu.
