Babycorn skewers on Tawa/Stove Top

Babycorn skewers2


I absolutely love corn on the cob and so tried this variation using baby corn. The best part about this is that it is unbelievably easy to make. It’s practically foolproof. And if you’re not keen on some of the toppings, this is completely customizable to your personal preferences.

This spicy corn  with zesty lime butter can be made spicy for parents and zesty for kids. Whatever way you make it, this is a versatile recipe that plays beautifully on the classic flavor of lime juice and chat masala.
