This is the first recipe I tried from my by birthday book, The Cake the Buddha Ate and it is divine! An absolute must make! Pete and I did the corn on the braai but you could easily grill them in the oven too.
Grilled Sweetcorn with Sweet Chilli, Coriander & Lime
1kg sweetcorn ± 6
¼ cup olive oil
½ tsp cumin seeds, bruised, crushed
½ tsp coriander seeds
¼ cup sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp garlic, crushed
1 tbsp lime juice – you could substitute with lemon
½ cup fresh coriander, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
- Precook the sweetcorn in the microwave for 5 to 7 minutes until tender alternatively boil in water for ±15 minutes.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan with the oil.
- Add the spices and sweet chilli sauce and bring to the boil.
- Add the garlic and cook while stirring for 5 minutes until thick.
- Add the lime juice and chopped coriander and add seasoning if required.
- Pour the sauce over the sweetcorn and braai for 5 minutes turning while basting with the sauce.
- Alternatively place in a preheated oven at 220°C and place on the highest rack in the oven. Turn the mielies when they turn brown and grill to finish off.

Utterly fantastic is the perfect description Tricia. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did when you get around to making them. Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
Delicious! I love all the spices you used in this.
Thanks Angie. BTW. I spoke to Pete about your last email and he said it is not a good idea to allow third party cookie on my browser as it will open me up to viruses etc. I am so sorry, wish there was another work around. I will keep popping over to see if there have been any changes on your site. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
How amazing is corn, especially when lathered with butter and a few cheeky herbs and spices. Will pick up some corn at the markets on the weekend. Mmmm!
Happy week ahead to you lovely lady, hugs and love across the oceans too.
