1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Vegetable oil
1 tbsp Sweet Hungarian paprika
1 pinch Cayenne
1 tsp Whole cumin seeds, lightly crushed in a mortar & pestle
Salt & pepper, as necessary
Use only unhusked corn. Soak in water for at least 30 minutes. Prepare either a grill or preheat an oven to 375F.
While the corn is soaking, whisk together all the basting ingredients. When the corn has soaked for 30 minutes, carefully peel back the husks & remove the silk. Do not remove the husks entirely. Using a pastry brush, brush the oil over the corn. Close up the husks & tie them closed. You need to ensure that the corn is well wrapped otherwise it will dry out as it grills.
Place on grill & grill for 15 minutes, turning frequently. If you do not turn the corn, it will burn. Or, bake in the middle of the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove husks & serve immediately. Or let cool & refrigerate & serve as part of a salad buffet.
