  2. Fry the shallots for 5 minutes until they are softened and coloured, add the crushed garlic and spices and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients (other than the yogurt) in a food processor. Add the blended ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir through the yogurt.
  4. Slice the corn into ribs by cutting each one into quarters lengthways and through the stalk
  5. Combine the melted butter with the dried spices.
  6. Fry the corn in hot oil (170C-180C) for 3-4 minutes until they have curled up and are a golden colour. Remove the ribs from the oil and drain them on kitchen towel to remove the excess oil. Add them to a large mixing bowl with the seasoned butter. Add salt and pepper and toss to combine the ingredients.
  7. Serve with the dip.

Alternatively, you could cook the corn ribs in an air fryer.
