Oven Roasted Corn with Chutney

Corn on the cob is one thing that I love right from childhood.In Chennai we find this only at the beach .The smell of the corn roasted on coal and the sea breeze can be very pleasant and comforting. In Bangalore I've found roasted corn shops on the sidewalks in many areas.It's either roasted or boiled in salt water.At times it used to be our breakfast when we sleep in on weekends and miss our breakfast in our hostel :) In one particular shop on commercial street the corn is roasted with a green chutney and it simply tastes yum. I've never tasted it elsewhere and it has a very unique taste. I've tried to replicate it here,it comes close but definitely not as good as the original !

Corn - 2 big ones
For the chutney :
Mint leaves - leaves from 3-4 sprigs
Coriander leaves - leaves from 10 sprigs
Green chili - 1
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Salt - as needed

-In a blender grind all the Ingredients for the chutney to a fine paste.
-Spread the chutney on the corn.
-Preheat the oven to 190 °C ,Bake for 25-30 mins.
