corncob delight

During the summer months, the metropolis Delhi abounds with corncob (called bhutta) sellers. Like ice-cream sellers you can find them at every corner.  Its a street delight that many partake in and why wouldn’t you? The cob is first roasted on a charcoal like a barbeque, then spices are added on top and finally its rubbed down with lemon that brings the zing to its flavour.  Its not only tasty but a rather filling snack at five rupees. A walk through the Dwarka sectors brought me to this seller. I requested him for a shot and he complied easily. I would have asked him to smile but then this isn’t a Kodak moment – the hardships of trying to earn your way by selling cobs are written all over his face.
