Sweet Corn bring sweet memories of my school and college days. At the end of summer and the beginning of rainy season street vendors use to sell them and we friends on our return from school use to meet in those joints. Where sellers use to grill them in charcoal filled earthen pot and then rub it with salt , red pepper and lemon juice. Those simple recipe has it own taste and flavor as those were shared with friendly fun and love.
Now we all are busy in our own lives don’t get the time to spend with each other but during this times heart always want to recollect those memories. So when I get hold of this sweet corn I can’t stop myself to cook them but of course in my way. Let me share my version of grilled corn.
