Usually during the monsoons we like to have corn chaat or Buttered corn or this recipe. On occasions, I also prepare Corn pakora. I also at times roast the corn cob on direct flame and then rub it with a slice of lemon smeared with red chili powder and black salt.

This masala corn is not a recipe as such, but just sharing the method. you can always add your choice of spices or add less or more and make a lot of variations in the recipe.
