Sweetcorn Mayo Sandwich

Sweet corn mayo sandwich5

In the two long years of blogging I have got a lot of exposure to new people and have made too many good friends too.

I was talking to one such super talented friend called Srivalli a couple of days back and between all the chit chats we had, she had told me about the Sandwich mela that she was planning to do on her blog. Since then, I was very interested in being a part of it and also grabbed this chance to gobble up some healthy sandwiches for breakfast :)

Mayonnaise in salads and sandwiches have always attracted me. I love its creamy texture and have always enjoyed the addition of mayo to any dish. So this time thought I should get a pack and give it a try at home :)

What is Mayonnaise?

Mayonnaise also know as mayo is a sauce. A stable emulsion of oil, egg yolk and wither vinegar or lemon juice. They also have spices and herbs at times. The Lecithin in the egg yolk acts as an emulsifier. Mayonnaise is often cream in color and may range in texture from that of light running cream to thick.

This is used as a salad dressing and for sandwiches too.

I have used Vegetarian mayonnaise for my sandwich. This veg mayo is made out of edible vegetable oil, water, sugar, milk solids, lemon juice, common salt, and emulsifying and stabilizing agents. So this creamy form of dressing is very useful for making delicious sandwiches and salads and its fully vegetarian :)

I have also heard of vegan mayonnaise that has soy milk instead of milk solids. So people, just grab a bottle of mayonnaise of your choice when you visit the store next time and enjoy making yummy sandwiches :)

Brand that I used: Fun Food - Veg Mayonnaise, 310g costs Rs.75 and is available in Fresh and Spencers Daily outlets.

Method:

Pressure cook corn cobs and de-seed it.

Chop capsicum and tomato into small cubes.

Take the corn and chopped veggies in a bowl and add mayonnaise, salt and pepper and give a good mix.

Keep this in the refrigerator for ten mins.

Apply butter on bread and pan roast it until golden brown.

Now sandwich it by spreading a generous amount of corn mayo and enjoy eating :)

Simple and tasty corn and mayo sandwich is ready :)

Tips:

Add veggies of your choice for the filling.

You can also toast the sandwich in a toaster.

You can also eat the corn and mayo mix just like a salad :)

Nithya,one suggestion...try the eggless Mayonnaise from American Garden,its really goood..Kraft is the best brand for Mayo,but American garden is equally good for eggless choice..:)

I answered your comment about the ginger biccies on my post but couldnt resist commenting here too as im rapidly falling in love with your blog! just to reiterate whilst im here, the ginger biccies call for dry ground ginger in my recipe rather than fresh :)
I hope you get to make them and enjoy them as much as we do here!

Srivalli said...

Nithi thanks for your sweet words, I am so glad you could send in your entries..

pehli-rasoi said...

I tried these sandwiches for breakfast today and liked by everyone :)
As I didn't have capsicum so added grated carrot instead.
I followed your instruction to toast the bread seperately and then spread the mixture, would like to know if I can grill or toast it in a sandwich maker. I am new with mayonnaise so really don't know how it would react upon heating?
