Boulevard Raspail Corn on the Cob # French Fridays with Dorie

I love a corn on the cob. Back in India I would always buy myself one whenever fresh juicy corns were in season and a "bhutta-wala," (as we refer to the street vendors selling corn) was in sight. here, my favorite way of cooking corn is to grill it on stove-top and then spice it up with chilly, lime juice and salt. my husband does not enjoy this stove-top grilled corn much so i usually cook it for lunch. but yesterday things did not work out as I had scheduled  and i ended up roasting the corn in the evening. husband agreed to have some, may be because the recipe was Dorie's... and much to my amazement, he really liked it. yeah !!  


Thanks to Dorie for sharing the recipe of the vegetable lady selling corn in Boulevard Raspail. Had it not been for her I would have never thought of roasting unhusked ears of corn in the oven and delighting over it hence. It is certainly a wonderful and easy way of cooking the corn. just put the whole corn with husk and all in a 400 degree F oven, roast it for 40 minutes, turning it once at 20 minutes mark, remove the husk, butter the corn, sprinkle salt and pepper and enjoy ! 

try this recipe while corns are still in season and be prepared to be impressed ! happy Friday !

    1. the smoky flavor has its own charm. I prefer that to oven roasted corn. but roasting it this way is definitely easy.

  6. This tasted good, but I like the more instant gratification of microwaving. The street corn in India sounds delicious!

  11. I do like the sound of using chilli, lime and salt with the corn. Glad hubby liked Dorie's take on corn.

  12. Although I prefer my corn-on-the-cob better when it is cooked in boiling sugar water or on the grill, I love the idea of spicing it up with chili, lime and salt. That sounds like something I will try. Glad you found a way to cook the corn that your hubby enjoyed.
