Sweet corn is my favorite, I can eat just plain boiled corn every single day. I always buy the big pack of sweet corns from Costco which lasts only for a week. I prefer the boiled corn while hubby prefers the buttered masala corn.

Apart from that, I make many other recipes like corn chivdacorn soupcorn pakodacorn curry and many more.

This corn and capsicum sandwich I made before diwali. That time hubby was in Canada and I always get confused what to cook just for one person (that’s me). I had leftover red bell pepper in the fridge after making red bell pepper soup. So I thought of making this sandwich for dinner. The below quantity makes filling enough for three sandwiches. It was too much for me only. So I had leftover filling for one sandwich, I kept in the fridge and made same for breakfast.

For making this capsicum corn sandwich, first boiled corn kernels and capsicum are sauteed in little olive oil with Italian herbs. Then thick, creamy white sauce is made and mixed with corn-capsicum mixture. I have also added touch of cheese. You can increase the cheese quantity if you want more cheesy corn capsicum sandwich.

Then filling is spread on bread slices. After that it can be grilled or toasted in toaster/grill machine. It can be roasted on nonstick tawa. Or like I have done, it can be made on grill pan till it is crisp.

That grilled, crispy bread with creamy and mild flavored filling is just fantastic and perfect texture.


How to make corn and capsicum sandwich recipe:

1) Boil the corn and remove the corn kernels. Or alternately, first remove the corn kernels and then boil or microwave it. I prefer the first method. Or you can use canned corn kernels or frozen one.

2) Also finely chop the capsicum. You can use green, yellow, orange, red. I like the slight sweet taste or red bell pepper which goes perfect with sweet corns. Hence I have used red colored one.

3) Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add chopped capsicum and corn kernels.

4) Mix well and saute for 2-3 minutes or till capsicum gets cooked slightly.
