Ingredients to make Corn on the cob

  • 2 corns, peeled and rinsed with water thoroughly.
  • 1 tbsp of melted salted butter
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • Water - enough to have the corns covered in it
  • Paparika or red chilly powder to taste

How to make Corn on the cob

  1. In a pan, take water and corn. Heat it and bring the water to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, turn the heat to medium high heat. Continue to cook untill the corns turn tender.
  2. You could check it by pricking it with a knife. It would take around 10-12 mins. Turn off the heat. Remove the cooked corns on to a plate lined with paper towel.
  3. Once the excess water has been absorbed, remove it onto a serving plate. Brush it with melted butter. Sprinkle it with chilly powder and lemon juice. Serve it hot.

My Tip:

If using unsalted butter, you may need to sprinkle some salt on the cooked corn. You could also use some ground black pepper, if you prefer to. You could either break the corn into small pieces or keep it the size it is. I prefer small pieces and hence broke them into smaller portions.
