One of my favourite things to BBQ is now corn on the cob. And my favourite way of doing it is marinating it in coconut milk and spicing it up with for example salt and pepper, or if I am going more Thai then with lime juice, chilli and lemongrass. And then just popping it on the BBQ still in its husk if it came that way.
And we also marinated some chicken with Sri Lankan spices to go with the corn. We get the Sri Lankan roasted spices in Sri Lanka but you can also make it yourself - for example I found a blog post here about how to make your own Sri Lankan roasted spice mix for meats. We decided to do these Sri Lankan chicken skewers with onions and peppers, and for a change with some aubergine cubes.
First we marinated the veggies for the skewers in the spice mix and some coconut milk.
The chicken went in a similar mix but in a different bowl for food safety reasons. Then we put them on some sticks.
And the corn goes on the BBQ as well.
Turn it over quite frequently, basting it with the coconut milk mixture and making sure you get them covered in black pepper as it is a key element of Sri Lankan food.
Result! Easy and so super tasty!
Serve it up with some jasmine rice and you have a tasty healthy dinner.
