I had to share this nostalgic recipe along with my other food blogger friends and we are bringing to you a mouthwatering array of Corn Recipes.

This Indian Cheese Corn Toast recipe was a popular pizza substitute too, you know what I mean 😉

You can even call it a Desi Pizza Slice (Desi = Indian), as it had all the toppings we wanted on a pizza and the white sauce (also known as Roux) was a homemade substitute of cheese.

So Voila – you have your pizza slice in a jiffy.

Hence, it was popular in many houses, restaurants and definitely a favorite with us kids. Fast Forward couple of years (by couple I mean 10-20yrs 😉

Now, we call the then Indian Cheese Corn Toast, a ‘cheese corn toast’ and it makes our weekend brunch/breakfast/appetizer menu so darn easy and delicious.


Process to make Indian Cheese Corn Toast

It’s so easy to make these Indian Cheese Corn Toast and you can use just about any kind of bread you have at home.

Just slice them into whatever shapes and there are 2 ingredients that are an absolute MUST for this recipe – Corn and Capsicum (Bell Pepper).

The sweetness of the corn, when combined with the spicy/sweet capsicum, adds such an awesome flavor and you can mix any other veggies of choice like onions, carrots, peas (even meat/bacon bits).

Just make a simple roux (the procedure in recipe card) and mix all the veggies.

Spoon them on the sliced bread, top it with cheese and bake.

It’s appetizer, you can make a night before and simply reheat (bake/microwave) and they’re ready to serve.


With Corn available so easily in the market, this is my favorite munching recipe these days and I hope you get to try it soon.

If you’re a busy parent looking for an easy #backtoschool snack recipe, this Indian Cheese Corn Toast is definitely a quick and delicious contender.
