Love sandwiches? We do, at our place!
Sandwiches make for the perfect lunch or snack on a busy work day. They are great for dinner too, if you don’t want to whip up an elaborate meal. And there are so many varieties of sandwiches possible – you just can’t get bored of them!
Here’s presenting a Cheese & Curried Babycorn Sandwich or Babycorn Masala Sandwich With Cheese, something I tried out recently and all of us loved. I have used tender babycorn to make the filling here, curried Indian-style. Paired with some cheese and tomato ketchup, the babycorn filling tastes just amazing!
Let’s now see how to make a Cheese & Curried Babycorn Sandwich.
Ingredients (makes 6 sandwiches):
For the filling:
- 6 big pieces of babycorn
- 1 medium-sized onion
- 1 medium-sized capsicum
- 1 tablespoon oil
- Salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon garam masala or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 2 pinches of asafoetida
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- A dash of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
- 12 slices of whole wheat bread
- Grated cheese, as needed
- Tomato ketchup, as needed
We will first get the vegetables ready to make the stuffing.
- Remove the husks and fibres from the babycorn.
- Chop the babycorn finely.
- Peel and chop the onion finely.
- Remove the cores and stem from the capsicum. Chop it finely.
- Keep the chopped veggies ready.
Now, we will prepare the filling for the sandwiches.
- Heat the oil in a pan.
- Add the chopped babycorn, onion and capsicum to the pan. Saute on medium flame for a minute.
- Keeping the flame low, add the salt to taste, turmeric powder, sugar, red chilli powder and garam masala. Mix well.
- Continue cooking uncovered, on medium flame, till the vegetables are cooked but still retain a bit of a crunch. This should take 1-2 minutes.
- Switch off gas, and add the finely chopped coriander and lemon juice. Mix well. The stuffing is ready – keep aside.
Now, we will prepare the Babycorn Masala Sandwiches With Cheese.
- Spread out a generous amount of the prepared babycorn stuffing evenly on one slice of bread. Over it, add some grated cheese and drizzle some tomato ketchup.
- Close the sandwich with another slice of bread.
- Prepare all the sandwiches using all the bread, in a similar manner. Grill them in a sandwich maker till brown on the outside and a bit crisp, taking care not to burn them. Serve immediately.
- You can use chana masala instead of garam masala in the filling. Adjust the quantity you use, as per personal taste preferences.
- I have used garam masala by Ciba Taaza Spices in the filling.
- I have used Amul processed cheese to make these Cheese & Curried Babycorn Sandwiches. You may use any other type or brand of cheese you prefer, instead.
- I have used Heinz tomato ketchup to make these sandwiches.
- I have used whole wheat bread in these Cheese & Curried Babycorn Sandwiches, but you can use any other type of bread instead too.
- Do not overcook the filling. The babycorn should still retain a bit of a crunch.
- I used an electric sandwich maker by Morphy Richards to make these Babycorn Masala Sandwiches with cheese. You could even toast them on a dosa pan.
- I have used tender babycorn from Mapletree Farms, Hosur, to make these sandwiches. They came with the husk, which I had to remove, along with the fibres. If you are buying peeled, cleaned and packaged babycorn, you can use it straight away.
