Spinach and Sweet corn Sandwich

The yucky spinach (as most kids would label it) in a different avatar !!! This is one of those simple sandwiches that are healthy, filling and yummy, all at the same time. They make for a great 4 o'clock snack and taste equally good in the lunch-box.

Read on for the easy recipe -

Preparation Time - 10-12 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 1/2 cup shredded spinach leaves 
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn
  • 1/2 of a small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/3 tsp GG paste
  • 1/3 tsp chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 4-6 tbsp grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter 

Preparation - Blanch the spinach and keep aside to stain excess water. Give it a buzz in a food processor to get a coarse textured paste.

Cooking - Heat the oil in a wok. Add the chopped onion and fry for 1 minute before adding the GG paste. After 2 mins, add the chili powder, spinach paste, sweet corn and salt. Cook for 3-4 mins. Remove from flame and keep aside.

Layer half of the spinach-sweet corn filling over a bread slice.

Top it with 2-3 tbsp grated cheese and close with another bread slice. Repeat the process with the remaining bread slices and filling.

Heat a sandwich maker/tawa. Brush a little butter on the outer sides of the sandwiches and grill/toast for 2 mins. (Cut into triangles if doing it on a tawa).

Serve hot or cold.

Note - The cheese is optional. One may skip it or even add some crumbled paneer instead.


  1. Combination of spinach and corn goes well. Nice sandwich.

  2. I make these Quite Often! With some grated paneer in, love the taste and combo !!
