Different herbs and spices can be used to make this corn cheese toast sandwich and you could always experiment. 

So what stuffing goes in the sandwich? lets experiment…. By adding some corn, basil, oregano, pepper, chili flakes to the sandwich along with cheese…..  oh yes…. I had some olives too… But I forgot to add them….. And no butter has been added to the sandwich. Instead, we have used olive oil…. Isn’t that interesting and innovative?

you can also cut down on cheese if you want and make the sandwich without cheese.

I had seen the Corn chili cheese toast recipe on maria’s websitewww.flavorsofMumbai.com. on seeing the corn chili toast recipe on her website, I knew I had to make this one. The pics looked so yummy. And a few days later I got fresh tender corn easily here. So had to buy them to make these amazing grilled sandwich.

Monsoon is the season of fresh corn in India and we get them easily this part of the year. So more corn recipes on the way. the rains… Cool weather…. Green everywhere….. A cup of ginger tea and some hot grilled/toast sandwich…

In her recipe, maria has made the sandwich in Indian style. If you wanna make Indian style, then straight away head to her Recipe post.

I wanted to make a more Italian style sandwich, so I have modified the ingredients to make it the Italian way. Thanks to maria for her awesome recipe. I am sure many sandwich lovers will like this recipe.

I have used fresh corn, but you can use tinned corn too. You could also add different types of cheese in the sandwich. I have a hand toaster that is kept on fire and the sandwich is toasted/grilled. You could also use a sandwich toaster or grill the sandwiches in oven.

How to make corn cheese toast

  • You see in India, we buy the corn with its leaves tightly wrapped around. You have to remove the leaves by hand and discard them.

fresh corn from market

  • A tender golden yellow corn cob is wrapped inside its leaves and once the leaves are removed you get to see the corn cob in all its wonder.

fresh raw corn cob

  • Heat water with some salt added to it and boil the corn cob for about 15-20 minutes. You could also pressure cook the corn cob.

cooked corn on the cob

  • Once the corn cob is cooled or still warm, remove the corn kernels with a knife. Just scrape the corn kernels from the cob with the help of a knife in a bowl.

  • Add all the dry ingredients to the corn. Just for the picture’s sake, I added little of the basil.

  • Below I have added all the basil and you can see the leaves are glossy. Thats coz I added 1 tbsp olive oil to it.

  • Mix everything well and keep aside. Doesn’t it look wonderful? If you are too lazy you could just stop the process here and straight away have the corn. Its too good. In fact I had a small spoon and it was tasting like the corn one gets in malls and movie theatres.

mixed corn mixture

  • Drizzle or spray some olive oil on one side of the bread. Keep this side touching the metallic part of the toaster. You could also use butter instead of olive oil.
