Baby Corn Bhutta

The spicy and tangy bhutta (roasted corn) on a rainy day in India is pure nostalgia. But the corn is usually difficult to roast and difficult to eat as well. This recipe is an improvisation of the bhutta concept but using baby corn. Perfect appetizer for parties and very easy to make.
