Corn Bhutta | Corn on the cob

Corn bhutta is my favorite snack whether it is during monsoons or summer. It is a popular street food sold in India. You can see street food vendors fluttering hand fan grilling corn on a charcoal grill. It is one of the most simple foods to make and needs no experience.

Bhuttas can be grilled on charcoal or on a stove. Tender sweet corn tastes best, because it is sweet and juicy. I have used bi-color sweet corn for this recipe.There are different spice rubs available and it varies from one recipe to other. Most common spice rub is made with Cayenne pepper, chat masala, lemon and salt. 


4 Corn on the cob with stem

For spice rub mix
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp Chat masala
1/4 tsp salt
1 Lemon


  • Remove corn husks and fibers with stem on
  • Place corn on a preheated grill or roast it on a medium flame. Keep rotating until its roasts evenly

  • In a mixing bowl, make spice rub mix with cayanee pepper, chat masala and salt
  • Cut the lemon in half and dip it in spice rub. Gently rub it over the corn and as you turn, lightly squeeze lemon juice
