    Khao Pod or Corn on the Cob

    Khao Pod or Corn on the Cob, funnily enough more corn on the cob is eaten when the cob is around 2 inches long than when it is fully grown, also steaming and putting lashings of butter on to it isn't that common, well the butter bit anyway, they do steam them here though.

    A large pile of corn on the cob being steamed, often they will leave the green covering on the cobs whilst steaming and use a bamboo plate to hold the cobs on above the steamer, which invariably is just a pan with water in on a charcoal grill or BBQ.

    This pre steamed corn on the cob is now being BBQued, never seen that offerd at a BBQ in the UK, then again we really haven't got enough summer days in the UK to become experts on the old what you can and cannot BBQ, so maybe it's just us?

    Here, they boil them to get rid of the vitamins and then dip them in a liquid lard/palm oil and sugar to help grow the diabetes problem. The wife loves it.

    Corn cobs roasted on those street stalls, wheel barrows.
    Yum Yum, me and the g/f. have tried it back in the UK but it doesn't come close to how they do it over in Thailand.
