The ingredients of the spicy cheese corn sandwich

You can find the ingredient concentration below in recipe card.

Sweet corn – For ease of preparation, I prefer canned sweet corn, but fresh corn can also be used. For using fresh corn in boiling water, add salt and 1 tsp of sugar and boil the corn in it. Cut the kernels from the cob with a knife.

Cheese – This recipe includes mozzarella cheese, but any other cheese can also be used if you have it. Cream cheese is also a good choice, or you can use sour cream as well. This is another perfect match with sweet corn.

Butter and oil I am using both butter and olive oil in this recipe. Both butter and olive oil, when used in cooking, help carry the tastes of the dish, and warming them emphasizes this quality. But butter adds a dairy richness that no oil can equal because it is smooth and creamy. Olive oil has a distinct flavor and smell. They improve the flavors of your dish when combined.

Spices – Chili flakes, Italian herbs, salt, and pepper are used in this recipe.

Sauces Inside filling of these sweet corn sandwiches, mayonnaise and ketchup are used. Chili garlic sauce can also be used if you like more spiciness.

Garlic – Chopped garlic is used in this recipe, but sliced garlic can also be used.

Lemon – Lemon juice will add a sour flavor to the filling.

How To Make Spicy Cheese Corn Sandwich

In a fry pan, melt the butter. Add olive oil and chopped garlic. Fry it on low heat until it turns light golden in color, then add the chili flakes and fry for a few seconds before adding the sweet corn to the fry pan. Add the corn and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Continuously stir it. Turn the flame off and add it to a bowl and let it cool down.

Add lemon juice, herbs, and spices to it. Put in the ketchup and mayonnaise and mix it well. You can also add chaat masala to it as well.

Grate the mozzarella cheese. In the filling, you can either add grated cheese or you can use cheese slices in the bread.

Spread it on bread. If you want to make it more appetizing, you can spread salted butter or margarine on the bread slices before adding the filling.

Grill it on a grill pan. If you don’t have a grill pan or sandwich maker, then simply toast it in a fry pan so that the cheese melts and enjoy.

Mint Mayonnaise Sauce 

To make fresh mint mayo dip sauce, place 1 bunch of mint leaves, 1/4 tsp lemon juice, salt, pepper, and dried basil in a mixer jar and mix. Mix 2-3 teaspoons of this paste into 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise and serve with sandwiches.
