Desi Corn Ribs

The desi corn ribs go really well with sour cocktails like a classic Margarita or rather any Tequila or Mezcal drink. Bay leaf is one of my favourites to combine with corn and makes for a very comforting snack. A vegetarian spin on ribs, flavoured with Indian curry spices. Just what you need when you’re in the mood to graze.


  • Whole Corns
  • Oil for Frying
  • Bay Leaves
  • 1 Lime
  • Pepper
  • Chilli Flakes


Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

  1. Cut the cobs in half crosswise and then in quarter lengthways, so that from one cob you get 8 pieces.
  2. Heat a deep pan of oil and fry them for 6-7 minutes until they curl back and look like ribs, with the outer kernels starting to colour.
  3. Remove from the pan and drain well on kitchen paper.
  4. Toss the corn ribs in a bowl with salt, fried bay leaves, pepper, and chili flakes.
