When you’ve little money but desire to live, this could be the best food for you in India. Maize cobs – which have corn on a cob and called pole corn or cornstick – are quite popular particularly in North India. You can buy one of these with a ready-made handle for Rs. 5 flat (or 8 cents).

In rainy season, vendors sell these cobs in almost every nook of a city. Parched on coal heat, they taste the best with a layer of salt and lemon is applied on them. As affluent Indians generally avoid Maize cobs because they prefer burgers and pizzas, this is considered a poor man’s meal.

A single maize cob will keep you going for hours; it’s like a full lunch. The only condition to consume it is that you should have strong teeth. While it doesn’t break the bank, it can certainly break your teeth without warning. So, handle it with care and buy it if your teeth allow for it.

Warning: Toothless must stay away from it.
