Iftar Party Food: Mini Bhutta aka Desi Street Corn

Sunday’s in Karachi are made for a spicy bhutta, Itwar Bazaar and a visit to Sea View. There’s nothing better than some fire roasted sweetcorn smothered in lemon and spices! I thought serving guests a miniature version of the bhutta would be perfect party food! 

Mini Desi Bhutta

Traditionally desi bhutta is made over a flame, if you have one handy feel free to use it! Chaat masala is really easy to make at home, check out my recipe: here. While this isn’t the most authentic desi bhutta, is definitely has the flavour and making it mini just makes this one of the easiest and funnest street food style canapes you can serve!
