A couple of weeks ago, in the market I spotted piles of very fresh bright green corn on the cobs. Because they were so fresh I got greedy and bought more than we needed. While we were coming back, I was telling my kids how I used to relish char grilled corn cobs in India. As soon as the monsoon season hits India, you would find Bhuttawalas ( who sells char grilled sweet corn) along roadsides in every city and people would enjoy this inexpensive and healthy snack. So as soon as we reached home, we all enjoyed char grilled corn cobs, we ate exactly how I used to eat in India, just apply little lemon juice, salt and red chilli powder.

Along with char grilled roasted corn cobs, one more item Indians crave, it's the indigenous deep fried bhajiyas or pakoras. And actually, the rainy season gets more romantic in India when you devour hot and steamy pakora with a cup of masala chai. Monsoon season is the season that turns every Indian crave pakora.

While I was sharing my childhood memories of Indian monsoon with my kids, my mouth was watering and secretly my mind and heart were cravings for hot and steamy pakoras. Lol, maybe Varun Dev ( God of rain-water) felt my angst and the next day in London we had plenty of rain and once again my heart screamed out for a large plate of hot bhajiyas.  I decided to prepare Corn Bhajiya with fresh Fenugreek leaves.

The whole family enjoyed them to the core! I am sure I have to say no more to convince you :)

    1. Thank you Sue for this comment. You can omit fenugreek leaves or add some spinach leaves. There will be a little taste difference but not huge.
