The monsoons are back, and so is corn season. Not only is corn rich in Vitamin C and packed with antioxidants, but it is also plain delicious. Apart from eating it the usual way--smoked on the stove, with butter on top--here are five recipes that will leave you licking your lips and begging for more.

Crispy corn

Craving a binge-worthy snack? This is exactly what you need. Just boil some corn kernels, coat them with corn flour and pop them in the air fryer (or oven) for baking. Top it off with any masalas of your choice.

Bhutte ka kees

Bhutte ka kees is a delicacy made with shredded corn that is popular in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Spice it up with masalas like mustard and cumin seeds, green and red chillies, turmeric, and asafoetida.
