There are a lot of things money cannot buy - eating roasted corn on a rainy evening is one of them. Small pleasures! Hoopeston IL, is the 'sweet corn capital of the world'...and even if we have never been to Hoopeston...we live in Midwest and corn is everywhere, so roasted corn is something we enjoy regularly...... with the pitter patter of rain, on our window sill .....what could we think of...but roasting some corn with some hot chai...!!
Mix the salt, chili powder, dried mint powder and set aside on a small plate. On a gas burner or charcoalgrill roast the corn on the cob, keep turning until the kernels acquire a brownish black color.
Take half a lime and dip the open end of the lime into a mixture of salt, dried mint powder and red chili then massage the length of the cob with the lime and the spices. Enjoy it while the corn is hot....spicy and savory with the sweetness of the corn..... !!
