Balinese Sweetcorn/Jagung Bakar Bali 🌽🌴

One thing we will always miss about Indonesia (apart from our families ofc) is the food. Before PK and I started dating, we had a catch up over Nasi Goreng at this restaurant by Legian beach. We didn't have sweetcorn aka the jagung bakar but we both love Bali so we had to recreate this in gloomy London.

For all you Indonesians living abroad, we gotchu.

Serves: 4 or 5 small corn cobs

Difficulty: Level 1

Wow factor: ⭐️⭐️⭐️


  • 1tbsp of salted, softened room temp, butter

  • 1tsp of sriracha chilli sauce (skip if you don't want this to be spicy)

  • 1 teaspoon of ketchup

  • 3 teaspoons of sugar (used caster but brown would’ve been even better)

  • Dash of black pepper and sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees.

  2. Push a skewer thru your cobs.

  3. Using a fork, mix all the ingredients for the sauce together.

  4. Brush the sauce all over that cob 🌽.

  5. Put them in the oven for around 18 minutes (making sure that you move/turn them once in a while so all sides will be crispy).

  6. Take them out, brush any leftover sauce on and put them back in for another 10 or 15 more mins on 170 degrees (depending on how charred you want them to be - my Bali vibes told me to leave them in longer to get that beachside jagung look).

  7. Once they are done, crack a bit of black pepper and EAT.

Before the oven-roasting.

Tip: You can change around the ingredients for the sauce depending on your own preference too 🌼

PK said they were better than the ones you actually get in Bali, granted he was a bit tipsy though but I’m still going to take it as a win 👩🏻‍🍳 #SezPK #IndonesianTreats #JagungBakar #JagungBali #Resep
