The milk-butter bath gives it a sweet flavor and tender texture. The seasoning can be of your choice. Some options from my side are Italian seasoning, lemon, mint and basil, parsley -paprika, or with Indian masala powder. The options are endless and you can experiment with your imagination when it comes to flavoring.

The butter bathed corn is supposed to be served hot. The corn when taken out from the bath will dry out fast. So it is better to take it hot.
