Lets see how to make Cheesy Spinach and Corn Toast….

To start with we make the filling…

Heat butter in a pan, temper with cumin seeds… add in chopped onion, garlic, spinach and corn. Saute well to cook them till the greens wilt a bit. You may add salt and little pepper at this stage.

Now add in 1 teaspoon of maida and saute along for a minute. 

Add in the milk to the mixture and keep stirring until it thickens.

The maida in the mixture will drink up the milk and make the spinach corn mixture slightly creamy as it thickens.  When it reaches a thick consistency, switch off! Keep this aside.

Now in a tawa… start toasting the bread with little oil or butter (as per your preference) toast light on either side. 

Sprinkle a light layer of cheese on top. (keep the flame at low at this stage)

Spread the spinach corn mixture on top of it.

Again spread some more cheese on top of it. (now increase the flame to medium)

Cover with a lid and cook for few minutes…

The cheese will start to melt… sprinkle the red pepper flakes over and switch off!

Cut them diagonally and serve hot!
