Curried Corn on the Cob
Serves 6
Corn makes a nice add-on to sauces and stir-fries but nothing compares taste to eating it right off the cob. The popping sound of the corn kernels, as they grill on fire, is a treat for the eyes and might remind you of your childhood camping memories. So why not relive your childhood by grilling up corn on the cob while camping out with your family? However, if you find the typical buttery dressing too boring for your taste buds, then spice it up with a dash of zesty flavors for a change. Pepping up the corn with yummy flavors doesn’t really call for a wide range of spices. Keep a jar of curry powder handy and rev up your campfire dinner with exotic goodness. It’s warm flavors complement the sweet and creamy goodness of the corn and makes the entire ensemble shine. However, if you find the curry powder too hot to handle, then crumble some goat’s cheese on top to tame down the heat slightly. Goat cheese haters can opt for grated parmesan cheese instead, though it doesn’t spread as evenly as the former. So get ‘corny’ with curried corn on the cob and have fun!
