A couple of more visits and a few more servings of crispy corn later, I was able to figure out what went into making it. The sweet corn kernels are fried using cornstarch so that they turn crispy and golden. What accentuates the BBQ style crispy corn recipe is the subtle pungency and tang from the red chili powder and chat masala. The onion and spring onion greens add a great texture and a fresh vibe. In simpler words, you can also call it crispy corn chat.
