I have always been “Honey, we have guests tonight. What is the delivery guy’s number?” kind of person. Making food for a crowd is just not my thing. My BP goes up, sugar comes down and I am a total nerve wreck!
Not to mention that the couple of trials have been disasters!
So whenever some one comes home, I call up anyone and everyone who deliver food to my place. I prefer to enjoy a nice relaxing time catching up with people than catching up with stove.
So when my son wanted to celebrate his birthday (“like all my friends do, Mommy”), I was so sure that I will be ordering food from outside.
But then some how somewhere we all decided that I will be doing the whole thing by myself.
Well, it helped that the attendees were kids and it was tea time. I don’t think I would ever have had courage to cook for 12 adults!
Anyway, the day came and went. And I survived. So did the kids. In face, the kids were happy and they had a great time. They went home with tummies full and we had an empty sandwich tray in return. And you have no idea how happy that made me :-)
Recipe Source : My friend
- Bread slices : 8
For the filling (4 sandwiches):
- Onion : 1, chopped fine
- Capsicum/green pepper : 1 small, chopped fine
- Corn : 1/4 cup
- Milk : 1/2 – 3/4 cup
- Flour (maida) : 1 tbsp
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Oil to sauté
- Wash, peel and chop the onions. Dice the capsicum into small squares.
- Heat the sandwich maker, if you have one.
- Heat 2 tsp oil. Sauté the onions. When it’s done, add the corn and capsicum. Cook till its softened a bit, but the capsicum should not be too soft.
- Add the maida/flour and cook for 30 sec. Add salt and pepper.
- Add 1/2 cup milk and stir so that no lumps remain. You might have to add some more milk to bring it to a slightly thicker than cake batter consistency. It shouldn’t be runny, but it shouldn’t be too thick either. We should be able to spread it in the bread without any problem.
- Let it cool for a bit. This can be made 2 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
- For the sandwiches, spread a tablespoon of the filling to one slice and cover with the other slice. Use a sandwich maker to make the sandwiches.
- Serve with tomato ketch up or on its own itself.
