Bhutta (Roasted Corn on the Cob)

Indian roasted corn on the cob is an easy and quick snack especially a favorite during the monsoon season in India. Bite into the charred and soft kernels to release that mustard and lemony flavors. Healthy recipes never tasted this good, right? @sarchakra





  • Corn on the cob 4
  • Mustard oil 2 tbsp
  • Paprika 1 tbsp
  • Salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Coriander leaf 1 tbsp, chopped


  • Heat mustard oil in a cast iron pan. Put the corn cobs in the pan.
  • Roast the corn turning intermittently till all the kernels have changed colour and turn black and burnt. Brush with a little more oil if needed to give that golden hue.
  • Put corn on a serving plate. Sprinkle with paprika powder, lime juice, salt. Top with some chopped coriander leaf.
