Roasted Masala Corn Recipe
Roasted Masala Corn Recipe
Chennai Beaches are known for their local street vendors crying out loud their recipes of the day, ranging from bajjis, vadas, sundal, cone ice (icecream) and chole (masala roasted corn on the cob). Although the rest of the dishes always took my interest to back then, Amma is a huge fan of these roasted chole and only recently have I found a liking to them. And when ever I go grocery shopping I pick up sweet corn cobs and store them in the refrigerator. For instant evening munchies I either pressure cook them or make these masala corn, I love them both ways and definitely healthy way to enjoy your evening cuppa. Not only do beach vendors sell them sometimes street vendors also make these delicious chaar grilled corns on iron skillets with coal and fire. They taste even amazing with the chaar grilled taste. I have used sweet corn instead of the chole, I prefer the taste of sweet corn and for how soft they are to munch, you can use the same method to make roasted chole. Now lets move on to the recipe.

DELL VENUE VIDEO EXPERIENCE


I have already shared my experience using Dell Venue in my previous posts here & here. Today I wanted to share a short recipe video using Dell Venue just for all of you to get an idea of Dell's video quality. I used basic Widows Movie maker tool just to cut the video length no other fancy software were used. And this is my first ever video experience-) so I can say I am amateur at video blogging. I must say that it was not easy holding the tablet in one hand and the corn in the other, this is one reason I do not engage in video blogging ;-). Also I wish I had my other half to help out but anyway it was a pure learning experience to say the least. 


VIDEO IN DELL VENUE 7

Dell Venue had 2 camera's obviously the back camera was the one I used to make the video (3 megapixel). I personally found that in natural day light the tablet does deliver good quality images. You can see the video below and come to your own conclusions. The below video was taken around 12 noon in mid day light and in my kitchen close to an open window. The darkness in the background is from the dark kitchen counter top and also the black glass top stove.

MASALA ROASTED CORN ON THE COB | BEACH STYLE SPICY CORN

Recipe Source - Own

Prep time - 2 mins
Cook time - 3-4 minutes per chole
Serves - 2

Ingredients


Sweet Corn - 2 no

Salt - to taste
Lemon juice - 1 lemon
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/3 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp

Method


1. Prep the corn by removing the outer layer (husk) and the silky stings of corn and set aside. I usually don't remove the husk but flip it backwards so that it gives me a grip while roasting them.

2. In a bowl combine the other ingredients - red chilli, turmeric, chaat masala, salt and lemon juice, mix well and set aside.
3. On the stove and bring it to medium- high flame. Hold the corn end along with the husk and find a good grip. 
4. Place the corn on the fire and wait for it to crackle and puff up, once you hear that then turn the corn flipping it in all sides so that it is evenly roasted.
5. Repeat the same for the other corn, once done. Using the sliced lemon dip it with the spices and rub them generously on the corn.

Devour the most amazing spicy yet healthy snack :-)








COOKS WISDOM
