Roasted corn on the cob

Written by: 7aumsuvai

Friends I didn’t post recipes frequently for the last few weeks as my DSLR camera had some problem. Finally I got it back after service. It is a big relief now. I thought of sharing this simple recipe as a summer special. Corn ears are roasted in oven with cilantro lime butter. Best for outdoor parties during summer and kids will love this.

  • You can replace cayenne pepper with red chili powder.
  • I used Kashmiri chilli powder in place of cayenne pepper.
