lunchbox special :corn and bean sandwich





Sometimes some of the most unplanned and quick experiments in kitchen turn out great!!!
The other day I made rajma and kept aside some boiled beans for snacking.
Next morning I cooked up this easy and quick corn and bean sandwich for hubby..an hour later I got an SMS  from hubby that the sandwich was yummm!!!
Wow!!!My experiment was a success again !!!





Ingredients

 2 Bread slices
 1 tbsp Kidney beans (boiled)
1 tsp Corn kernels (cooked or frozen)
1 tsp Cheese
1 Tomato(finely chopped)
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Basil
Salt and pepper  to taste
Pinch of Red chilli
Butter and Oil for cooking



Method

Take olive oil in a pan.Add garlic and cook till it releases flavour.Add chopped tomatoes and cook adding little water.Add salt,basil,oregano,black pepper and red chilli .When the tomatoes are cooked add boiled kidney beans and corn  and mix.Now take bread slice.Top it with this mixture.Sprinkle some grated cheese.Cover it with the second slice and toast it on a pan applying butter on both sides.Cut into two and serve.
These sandwiches are great for breakfast and  perfect for lunchbox and picnics !!!


Notes :
You can even used left over rajma .First cook till the gravy dries and mix with corn and herbs.
Cheese is optional but it does adds taste 
You can  even add other veggies like mushrooms or paneer.
