Spicy corn on the cob

Usually I used to pressure cook the corn with salt and take it as such, but this time thought of trying with spice. Red chilly powder and salt with lemon juice tastes so good. It is great for barbecue parties in summer.

If you don't like it too spicy try adding pepper, salt and lemon juice.  Once you try this you will not choose the other way of having it. An easy snack, ready in 5 minutes.


Ingredients:

  • Corn on the cob  - 4
  • Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 2 tbsp

Method:

Mix red chilly powder, salt and lemon juice in a small bowl. Clean the corn and wash it. Wipe it in a dry towel and microwave it for 3 minutes or until tender.  While hot; brush the corn with spicy lemon mixture. Serve hot.

Note:

  • If you feel it is too spicy try adding pepper powder instead of red chilly powder.
  • If not using microwave, boil corns in a large pan with water for 15 minutes in stove top.
