Corn on the Cob

I love eating corn especially the kind you can roast over an open flame or on charcoal, like you get on the streets of India. Since I have an electric stove range at home, I was looking for some other way of cooking it when my sister suggested using the ‘Broil’ option in the oven. While it doesn’t exactly give you the same result as charcoal-cooked bhutta does, it comes close enough!

Corn on the cob (husks removed)
Olive Oil
Chilli powder
Black pepper powder


  • Pre-heat the oven by pressing the ‘Broil’ option at 475 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Cover an oven-safe tray with aluminium foil and place the corn on it. Spray olive oil on all sides of the corn (Alternatively, you could use your fingers to smear the olive oil on the corn)
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper powder and chilli powder as required
  • Place it on the top rack of the oven and cook for 20 minutes. About 10 minutes into the cook, turn the corn so that it cooks evenly. Serve hot!
