Flame-grilled Spiced Sweetcorn

Image for Recipe - Flame-grilled Spiced Sweetcorn
  • Time preparation 10 minutes
  • cook time 30 minutes
  • Serve Serves 4

  • 4 sweetcorn cobs

  • 2 tbsps chaat masala

  • ¼ tsp chilli powder, or to taste

  • A little unsalted butter or low-fat crème fraîche (optional, see introduction above)

  • 1 lemon, cut lengthways into 4–6 wedges

Peel back the husks of the sweetcorn, leaving them attached to the cobs. Remove the silky bits and wash the cobs well.

Mix the chaat masala and chilli powder in a small bowl. Preheat the barbecue. Grill the sweetcorn directly over a high heat, turning often with the leaves, until lightly charred all over (if it rains you can do this directly over a gas flame). When cooked, smear each cob with butter or crème fraîche, if you want.

Serve the sweetcorn with the lemon wedges and a little mound of the spice blend on the side. Dip the wedge in the spices and rub them over the sweetcorn, squeezing a little lemon juice on as you do and serve.
