Step 1

Put the corncob in a large steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water and cover and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the corn is just tender (I would use my electrical tiered steamer).

Step 2

Put the ground coriander, cumin and chilli in a small non-stick frying pan and cook, stirring for 1 minute or until aromatic and then add the spread/margarine and garlic and cook stirring until the spread has melted.

Step 3

Remove the pan from the heat.

Step 4

Cut the corncob in half and add to the pan and brush with the spice mixture.

Step 5

Add coriander, then toss to coat corncob halves and then serve and enjoy.

Step 6

VARIATION - replace the fresh coriander with parsley or chives.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Both the hubby and I thought the cumin was a bit too much...it overpowered all the other flavors including the corn...loved the coriander/cilantro...this made a nice presentation...made for "First Time" tag game...
