Grilled Corn Bhel
Sweet grilled corn kernels meet crunchy corn flakes in this bright salad inspired by a classic Indian street-food dish.Thomas Payne

In chef Meherwan Irani’s fresh take on the Indian street-food dish bhel, grilled sweet corn and fresh vegetables are tossed with a cumin-lime dressing and corn poha, a popular puffed corn snack. Irani fries his own corn poha, but store-bought unsweetened corn flakes make an excellent substitute.

All of the ingredients can be prepared in advance, but for the brightest flavor, wait until just before serving to mix in the dressing. Leaving some of the husk on the corn will prevent the kernels from drying out; if purchased pre-shucked, wrap the cobs in aluminum foil before grilling.
