Grilled Corn Indian Style (Roasted Bhutta)

Grilling or roasting corn this way transports me back to Mumbai, this is the time you'll see vendors everywhere roasting corn. The vendor usually roasts the corn on a charcoal grill. I used my stove top instead but you can use your grill for this too. I like the convenience of doing it inside, so I can multitask a the same time. To be honest I used to want a gas stove top, but I'm finding out, that it's easier to use the electric stove top as the heat is a little slower and you can leave whatever you're roasting on the griddle and work on other things simultaneously.

Corn on the cob
Cayenne Pepper
Lime or Lemon cut into half
Remove the husks off the corn.
Place the corn on a wire cooling rack or the contraption I have is like a little griddle or roaster with holes, which I place on my stove top.
Cook or roast the corn evenly and keep rotating the corn till it is brown all over.
Mix the salt and cayenne pepper, dip the lemon half into this mixture and apply on the corn.
Enjoy the hot and sour flavor of corn.
