Salt-1/2 tsp or to taste
White pepper powder-1 tsp to 1 1/2 tsp
Bread-6 Big Slices of Sandwich loaf (can be any variety, whole wheat is good)
Melted butter- 2 tbsp, for brushing
For white sauce
Whole wheat flour-1/4 cup (50gms)
Unsalted butter-15 gms
Cheddar cheese-100 gms cube (optional)
Remove thick stalks from palak leaves, wash well and cook in its own juices in an open pot over stove top for 8-9 minutes or cook in a microwave for 4 minutes (800W).Grind the palak into a smooth paste once cooled and set aside. If using frozen palak, thaw and then cook. Rinse if using frozen corn, boil in microwave or stove top until just tender (4-5 mins).For the white sauce, melt butter in a thick bottomed pan, and then add whole wheat flour or white flour (maida), fry stirring rapidly to avoid burning.After the raw smell of flour subsides, switch off stove, add the milk, stir briskly to remove lumps (you could use a whisk too). Return to fire and simmer. If you are adding cheese, grate the cheese you are using and add to the simmering sauce, mix well and allow to melt well into the sauce.The sauce is done when it coats the back of ladle, add salt and white pepper powder now, and stir.To the sauce, add the cooked and ground palak and corn, mix well to a thick sauce like sandwich spread.
To make the sandwiches, brush one side of each slice of bread very lightly with melted butter.Place one slice buttered side down on a Tawa/ Sandwich maker, spoon some prepared filling onto the slice evenly.Cover with another bread slice, buttered side up and close the sandwich maker or you can use the tawa too. (Roast the filled bread on both sides in tawa.) Switch off the sandwich maker once ready and remove gently, cut diagonally and serve hot and crisp.
