Corn on the cob India

How about trying corn on cob (called “Bhutta” in Hindi) with chilli, salt and lime?  It makes a great snack while walking on the streets of India. It’s not the usual baby corns in the salad that you will be used to.

The closest would be the ones you put on the barbecues. But if you try these Indian corn on the cob, you will never want any other corn.

You can find these corns being sold on the streets everywhere in India. They will sprinkle a bit of lime, salt and chilli for taste. Great thing about it is that they are baked over coal that gives a distinct taste.

  1. I think Bhutta is probably the most popular street food in India. No matter where you go in India you will find this.

    And surprisingly the name doesn’t change geographically. It is bhutta all over India.

  2. Thank you to remind me this bhutta with salty masala spread with lemon it is really very tasty. you can enjoy the taste while walking.

  3. Indian street food is one of my favourite items. Last year, I traveled to India and it was a great experience.
    If you are an Indian Traveller, then you must try street food.
