Description

This Indian Masala Street Corn hails from the streets of Bombay. It’s lathered with ghee and garam masala spice-a simple easy summer side dish to add to your next Indian feast!


Ingredients

  • 46 corn on the cob, shucked
  • 1/4 cup ghee, or enough to coat
  • 23 teaspoons garam masala spice, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch cayenne or chili flakes (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a squeeze of lime juice (or add 1 teaspoon amchoor powder to the ghee)
  • Garnish with optional masala chaat, scallions or cilantro, lime zest or lime wedges

 


Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Shuck corn. Grill corn dry, directly on grates over medium-high heat, until nicely charred on all sides, about 12 minutes.
  3. Mix garam masala and salt with the ghee (feel free to add chili flakes or cayenne for more spice and amchoor powder if using).
  4. Brush the Masala Ghee over charred corn. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Squeeze with lime juice and serve!
  6. Feel free to add any optional garnishes- scallions, lime wedges, cilantro, fresh chilies, masala chaat.

Notes

You can also cut the kernels off the charred corn and season with the ghee (perhaps go lighter here) garam masala, salt pepper and lime juice and serve this in a bowl.

You can also use this ghee-masala spice mix for sauteed frozen corn if you need a faster Indian side. A  little sauteed chopped onion would be nice here too. 😉 You get the idea.
