Craving Bhuttan? Try Sunbulah frozen corn

I've tried the Egyptian Bhutta (corn on the cob) sold on the roads during winters but it doesn't even come remotely close to the bhutta we are used to eating on the roadside in India.

An American friend of mine mentioned that the kind of corn sold here in Egypt on the roads is what is sold as cattle feed in the US. I don't know how true that statement is but it was an interesting story none-the-less. :-)

Anyway, getting back to topic. I tried the Sunbulah frozen corn on the cob today and its a pretty good substitute for the Indian corn.

The only issue is that it cant be grilled on the flame - what with being frozen and all: you would have to first thaw it then dry it etc etc. But if you boil it for a couple of minutes you can then eat it with your favourite toppings. Try salted butter or lemon juice, salt and chilli powder.

It healthy, yummy and fun
