It is the same story every monsoon. For me, there is only one and one thing only that signals that the next few months are going to be wet, slushy and filled with thunderstorms – and that is the smell of freshly roasted corn!

Yes, paeans have been written about the smell of fresh earth and the lilt in the air when the monsoons come rolling around, but for me, the smell of corn and those bursts of yellow through the green husk are enough. All through the season I try and have roasted/grilled corn with a squeeze of lemon and masala. But if you tend to get bored with just one topping for your grilled corn, then fret not! We have an entire list of ways you can make your grilled corn sing this season and be the absolute envy of anyone watching you eat!

This is the type I was talking about above. The kind that makes my mouth water and my tastebuds sing! Roasted over a bed of charcoal, with crisp, black kernels peeking through the dark yellow ones – this style of corn is eaten best with a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of red chilli powder mixed with salt, and a generous swipe of a special green chutney. A quick second on the coals again just so the heat of the masalas tampers down and voila! you have your date for the evening! Yes, it is that good!
