When I went to the grocery store last week, I noticed this terribly fresh looking corn that was so inviting and hence bought a couple of those even though I didn't have the slightest clue as to what I was going to do with them :-). Back home, I used to love fresh corn when it is cooked over the flame and has that slight charred flavor to it. After coming to the US, I tried to do the same over an electric burner only to find out that I cannot get the same effect as the flame. Moreover, I had never made any dish with just corn alone although I use frozen corn along with other veggies in many dishes. Anyway, after I bought them, they were sitting in my refrigerator for about a week and finally I decided to try something really quick with them and it turned out great. I even had a couple of friends who came over for lunch last weekend and served this as an appetizer :-).
Fresh corn - 2
Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
Red chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon (vary this to suit your taste)
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
1. Microwave corn in a container with little water for about 10 - 15 minutes (the time might vary based on the power level of the microwave). You can even do this over the stove. Set it aside for it to cool down a bit.
2. In a small cup, mix lemon juice, red chilli powder and salt thoroughly and rub the cooked corn from step 1 with the mixture and serve :-).
How simple is that????? It makes for a really quick and healthy snack.
