Spiced corn on the cob

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 larges Tender corn cobs cut into 4 pieces
3 tablespoons Vegetable oil
1 small Onion; finely chopped
1 Cm. Fresh root ginger grated
1 Garlic clove; crushed
100 grams Thick set yogurt
½ teaspoon Turmeric
½ teaspoon 5-spice
1 pinch Chilli powder
½ teaspoon Garam masala
1 teaspoon Ground coriander
3 tablespoons Water


This wonderful recipe is inspired by an idea given to me by an Indian friend. The slices of corn cob are poached in an aromatic, spicy sauce with a yogurt base, and are sumptuously delicious. It makes a complete meal if served with the simple mushroom curry.

Mix the spices together and stir into a paste with the water. Fry the corn cob pieces in the oil until browned all over, and set aside.

Then fry the onion, ginger and garlic for a few minutes until softened, and stir in the spice paste. Cook gently for 2-3 minutes and then stir in the yogurt gradually. Season to taste with salt and return the corn to the pan. Heat through gently and it is ready to serve.
