Bhutta ( Grilled Spicy- Tangy Corn on the Cob)

Bhutta is a popular Indian street food. Corn on the cob is commonly sold on the streets of India either boiled or grilled on charcoal. If grilled then they spice it up with red chilli powder with a hint of lemon juice or they also spread a spicy chutney. Any way it tastes great.

I learnt to make this from a good friend of mine. I loved the very first time he served me. Since then I have been making it and is a favorite of mine. Making bhutta is very simple and the end result is yum!! Do give this a try and enjoy it on a nice rainy day :-)

  • Corn on the cob- 1
  • Red chilli powder- To taste
  • Lemon wedge- 1
  • Salt- To taste


Peel the corn.

Now place a phulka stand on the electric coil and turn it on high (you needn't use the stand if you have a gas cooking stove or you can also cook the corn on charcoal). Now place the corn on the stand.

Cook it until it is nicely charred all over the surface.

Meanwhile mix small amount of salt and red chilli powder.

When the corn is nicely charred, remove from heat. Now dip the lemon wedge in salt- red chilli powder mixture and rub it on the surface of the corn (as required). 

Bhutta is ready!!

Serve it hot. Above measurement serves one.
