Sweet Corn Sandwich - Kid's healthy breakfast

     Its been raining for the past 2 days.The grass are turning green. I feel like being in India, during monsoon season. The urge of  having fried snack is increasing. I postpone the thought to certain extent. May be the urge will overcome me by this evening :) Took these pictures, during one of the cloudy days. Felt happy with the outcome. The antique wooden tray, I got in Home goods, gave a rustic effect to the picture.This is a healthy sandwich ,with all the goodness of cheese and corn. Its a breeze breakfast.


Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time       : 5 minutes
Baking time         : 5 minutes
Yield                     : 2


Ingredients:
1.Bread slices -  2
2.Onion  -  1/2
3.Tomato-  1/4
4.Green chillies - 2
5.Corn kernels -  1/4 cup
6.Garam masala - a pinch
7.Parmesan - 1/4 cup
8.Cream or malai - 2 tbsp
9.Cilantro - few
10.Oil - 2 tbsp
11.Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
12.Salt - to taste
Method:
* Take a pan , add oil and splutter with cumin seeds. Add chopped onionn, slit green chillies .Saute it till the onion turns translucent.Now add cubed tomatoes and sprinkle little salt. The tomato should not be mushy, it should be cooked.

* Add the corn kernels to the pan. Mix it well.Blend the corn to the ,masala .At last add garam masala and salt. Now , we can add cream or malai to the pan. Turn off the stove immediately. Since ,I didn't have cream, just took malai from milk and added it to the pan. This gives a creamy texture to the mix.
* Toast the bread slices with little oil or butter on a pan. Scoop the masala and spread it on the toasted bread slices .Chop the cilantro and sprinkle it on the bread .
* Pre heat the oven @350 farenhiet. Spread shredded cheese on top of the bread. Place the bread slices on a baking pan, covered with aluminium foil.

* Toast the bread slices for about 5 minutes or till the cheese is melted. Serve immediately for break fast or snack.



Notes:
* We can also add some pepper powder to the masala. Adjust the spices according to your taste.
* Adding malai ,gives a creamy texture to the masala. If you don't have skip it.
* We can also add some other veges to the masala.
* Don't bake the bread for too long, then it will become crisp.
* We can also , grill the bread slices, by closing the sandwich.
* The masala should not be too mushy, then the bread will become soggy.
