Makha Butta with Ellipaya Miram

Makha butta or corn on the cob is one of my favorite food, prepared in any form. Whenever I see fresh corn in the stores, it reminds me of street side vendors back home. During the corn season, these vendors are every where selling fresh corn or roasted corn. They roast the cobs on coal in front of you and rub it with some salt and lime juice. It is simply delicious. It is even better when eaten with ellipaya miram or garlic chili powder in butter. Yesterday I picked put some fresh corn on the cob and this morning, corn was my breakfast. I wanted to grill it on the stove but in the last minute, I got lazy and boiled it instead. The combination of ellipaya miram with corn on the cob is heavenly. This goes to Sia of Monsoon Spice for her WBB – Summer Feast event.
