ROASTED CORN.....

Corn, I feel epitomizes a rainy day for me,
I feel there is no greater feeling or the experience of having a hot “butta” or roasted corn on such a day.




CORN SELLER ROASTING FRESH CORN(check out the matching dress of the little girl)

I have pleasant memories of the early days of our married life when we used to take short weekend trips to nearby places like lonavala , khandala . we used to go out when it rained heavily ,stood under one umbrella and used to devour these hot coal roasted corn which were roasted in front of you on a cart and garnished with chaatmasala , red chili powder and salt.


CORN ARE OF MANY VARIETIES ,BUT HERE IN INDIA WE CAN FIND ONLY THE WHITE AND THE YELLOW SWEET CORN.

Both the types are so different from each other in taste and looks, i love the sweet corn for its juicy and sweet taste and it can blend well with any curry, soup and even as a garnish or snack.


The roasted corn you see in the above pictures are roasted at home on my gas stove and not purchased from the vendor you see in the picture above.

There is one corn vendor opp. Roxy who sells sweet corns. His method of preparation is different. He, half roast sweet corn with skins on inside the Sigdi, then he takes out the skins of the corn and roast it on the charchol. After that with the help of knife he removes kanasache dane and adds butter, special masala,salt and lime.

It's different.
