Well, I have been making a lot of things using sweet corns. I just love sweet corns After my cheese corn balls, I was really tempted to try out this sandwich. I made this the very next day for breakfast. The sandwich was just yumm. My BIL was in town for a small vacation and doesn’t like spinach at all. He was quite reluctant to taste the sandwich but it was finished in no time after his first bite 😅 The taste of spinach is not very evident. The sandwich turns out to be very creamy without the addition of cheese. I couldn’t manage to take step wise photos but the creamy sauce was similar to the sauce I prepared for cheese corn balls. You can check out the step wise photos here. For the sandwich you will need the following..
3 cups spinach, washed and finely chopped
1/2 cup sweet corn, boiled and slightly mashed
2 tsp garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp maida or whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1 tsp oil/butter
salt to taste
6 bread slices of ur choice
Heat a pan (non stick preferably), add 1 tsp oil/butter, add garlic, saute for a few seconds and add spinach leaves. Cook the leaves in high flame till they turn soft and the water evaporates (they will reduce in quantity). Add sweet corn, mix well and remove it from the flame. Keep the sauteed spinach-corn in another bowl and in the same pan add butter. When the butter melts, add maida/all purpose flour and mix well. Make sure the heat is low while making the sauce. Slowly start adding milk to the butter and maida, making sure no lumps are formed. When the sauce turns very thick, add spinach-corn along with salt and pepper. Mix it well and switch off the flame. Now, toast the bread slices in a tawa. Remove the slices from the tawa and apply butter generously. Take a spoon and apply the prepared creamy spinach and sweet corn mixture to the toasted bread. Put another slice of bread above the spread and press lightly. Cut it diagonally and serve immediately.
* Applying butter to the toasted breads is just optional.
* Make sure no moisture is left in the leaves
* You can also add cheese in the prepared sauce.
You can make it spicy by adding green chilies or red chilly powder.
You can skip the use of garlic as well.
