Cheese Corn Toast Recipe

Cheese Corn Toast is a simple breakfast recipe that can be prepared within just 5 minutes. This cheese corn toast is my daughter's favorite.  I made this last Saturday.  If you are a follower of me on Instagram , I'm sure you have seen this pic.  With the similar idea I made Roti Pizza (Indian flat bread pizza) last Sunday.


As my daughter doesn't like onion and capsicum, I haven't added these two veggies on the toast. But if you like, you can add. I'm using ready to eat sweet corn here to save time. It's a no oven recipe.  I made it in a flat pan (Tawa).
