Perfectly grilled Corn can be easy achieved at your own without any problem. Corn is my mom’s fav and I remember her eating this full day. I am not exaggerating she will literally keep eating just this corn for whole day. She loves steamed corn the best but I like this grilled version a lot.

Well in India all people love to do is shopping and going to beach. When you think of beach, the first thing that will come to your mind is raw mango(yummy) sliced long and sizzled with chilli powder and salt. Next famous one is grilled corn and I love the way they pour the lemon juice and cover the corn with chilli powder and salt. AWWWW … so yum. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Well it’s actually very easy to make it at home. All you need is gas stove and “voila” it will be ready in 3-4 mins.

Now lets see the recipe on how to make grilled corn?
Grilled corn is very easy to make and so much fun when it's homemade.
1. Peel the skin of the corn. I didn't want to hold the corn in hand completely so I used stainless skewers and inserted them at the end of the corn .
2. Now switch on the stove and show the corn directly on fire as shown in pic. Keep rotating the corn to all sides, so it doesn't burn on one side . This will take 2-3 mins. Once done, mix chilly powder,salt and chaat masala together in a small bowl and keep separate.
3. Now take the sliced lemon and dip in the spice mix nicely and start spreading directly on corn while it is still hot. Otherwise just squeeze the lemon juice well coated on hot corn and finally sprinkle the spice on top. Its up to you how you want to do it.
4. Yummy grilled corn on stove is ready to eat.
