Mahindi ya kuchoma (Grill Corn Tanzanian Style)

Corn on the cob 

Charcoal Grill – Get the coals started and heat up until gray or medium hot. Arrange them so they are in an even layer.

Prep the Corn – Strip the corn husk all the way back to the stem. Do remove all the silk to expose the corn kernels.  

By now your grill should be hot so place each ear of corn on the grill rack and cook for about 15 minutes until the kernels are tender. You want to turn the corn occasionally so they cook uniformly and don’t burn. Expect the outside husk to turn black, but you don’t want them to burst into flames.

When done, remove from the grill, cut into pieces and serve on a platter.
