Grilled corn with 3 different dressings.

Comments : 2 Posted in : Appetizers & Snacks on by : Ratna Tags: , , , , ,

There  is  something  about  the  monsoon  and  grilled  corn.  The  gentle  crackle  of  the  open  fire  on  which  the  road  side  vendor  constantly  rotates  the  cobs,  the  popping  of  the  corn,  the  ears  from  the  corn  piled  high  in  the  rickety  garbage  bag  set  on  a  corner  is  a  telltale  sign  of  monsoon  in  India.

A  quick  rub  with  mustard  oil  or  butter  these  days,   a  few  sprinkles  of  salt  and  spices,  a  final  squeeze  of  lemon  juice  and  you  are  good  to  go.

The  fact  that  no  washing  is  needed,  makes  them  such  a  desirable  snack  for  picnics  or  camping  trips  where  water  could  be  limited.

The  choice  for  dressing  are  many.  I  have  done  3  of  my  favourite  ones.  What  is  your  go  to dressing for these beauties?



Corn  on  cobs                                      6

Rest  of  the  ingredients  are  mentioned  under  method.


Clean  the  corn  of  the  ears.  Pull  the  husks  back  and  tie  them.  Place  them  on  a  rack  on  the  gas  on  high  heat.  As  it  starts  to  pop  and  get  some  colour,  carefully  turn  them  around   using  a  pair  of  silicone  or  steel  tongs.

Switch  the  gas  off  when  it  is  evenly  done.  Apply  a  layer  of  melted  butter.  Apply  the  dressings  of  your  choice.

Dressing  1,  Mmm

Mayonnaise                                 1  tsp

Dijon’s  mustard  paste           1  tsp

Chopped  mint  leaves              1/2  tsp

Salt  and  pepper                         to  taste

In  a  bowl  mix  together  Mayo  and  mustard.  Brush  this  on  the  cob,  sprinkle  the  salt  and  pepper,  garnish  with  a  few  mint  leaf  pieces.

Dressing  2,  Spicy  Indian

Lemon  juice                                  1  Tbsp

Chilli  powder                               1/2  tsp

Rock  salt                                         to  taste

Chaat  masala                                1/4  tsp

Chopped  cilantro                        1/4  tsp

Mix  all  of  the  above  and   brush  it  on  the  cob.

Dressing  3,  Cheez  whiz

Grated  Parmesan  cheese             1  Tbsp  and  more  to  garnish

lemon  rind                                              1  tsp

lemon  juice                                               2  tsp

salt  and  pepper                                     to  taste

Chopped  cilantro                                 1  tsp

Mix   the  first  four  ingredients.  Rub  it  on  the  cob.  Garnish  with  cilantro  and  more  cheese.

Mmmm  good.

Happy  Canada  day  friends.  Have  a  great  long  weekend.

Rock  salt  and  Chaat  masala  are  available  in  Indian  grocery  stores.

    Love love love corn on the cob! Cheese and spices are both my favourite ways of enjoying them. I once tried a sun dried tomato pesto version and loved that too. Your photos make me wish all the more for Summer.

      Summer will come to you before you know Sonali. Sundried tomato pesto sounds interesting. Will have a go at that sometimes.Thanks for stopping by.
