  • 2 ears sweet corn
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt, or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives


  • 1   Husk the ears of sweet corn and stand an ear upright in a skillet with the top pointing up. Use a sharp kitchen knife to slice off the kernels, working from top to bottom and rotating the ear after each cut. Use the back of the knife to scrape extra juices into skillet. Repeat with remaining ear of corn.
  • 2   Drizzle olive oil over the kernels and sprinkle with salt; place over medium heat and cook until corn is hot, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; continue to cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season corn with cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and garam masala. Cook and stir until corn is tender, about 2 more minutes.
  • 3   Reduce heat to low and stir Greek yogurt into corn mixture. Remove from heat, stir in chives, and season with more salt, if desired.
