Masala Seasoned Corn on the Cob

Corn is one of those yummy in your tummy treats. It’s healthy, but not exactly overindulging when you’re looking for a snack. To me, one of the best ways to eat corn is when it’s roasted over a grill. When done right, the kernels caramelize and create a tasty, smoky flavour.

I went to a farmer’s market recently and there was a stand with a guy barbecuing corn. Although corn with butter and salt is the standard fare, this particular vendor specialized in making it with Indian flavours by coating it with butter, salt and masala spices. It was salty and spicy, but sweet because the corn was so fresh. Since masala can be any number of spice combos, the most I can guess is it contained chili powder, black pepper and perhaps some cumin, clove and paprika. It was sooooooo good! Apparently this is a common street snack in India too. Although summer is over, I’ll have to remember this for the next time I barbecue corn over the grill!
