Smoked Corn on the Cob Recipe – How to Roast Corn on a Gas Stove

Roasted Corn on the Cob is one of the most popular evening snack in my home. It’s a very easy to make as well as very healthy snacks for your kids and beloved once. The most common methods for cooking corn on the cob are frying, boiling, roasting, and grilling. Corn on the cob can be grilled directly in its husk, or it can be husked first and then wrapped in aluminum foil. But I use the ordinary gas stove top to roast the corn and it’s too simple, that you have to just show the corn on direct flame and roast until the corn gets charred. This will give a nice smoky flavor and it can be done in minutes. To make this we just need a very few ingredients and a couple of minutes.
