Saute till the corn is cooked. Boil milk and once it is taken off the stove, add maida and then cheese. Add salt to taste. Mix it well so that lumps are not formed. Once it becomes like a paste add corn, onion and garlic mixture. Now grind the green chilli and add it to this mixture. Mix it well. You can also add oregano powder. If the mixture is thick, you can add little milk to it (it should be like a paste only then you can apply it on the bread).

Now take a bread slice, apply the cheese corn mixture on it and close it with another bread. Heat a pan, add little oil to it and toast the bread.

Cheese corn sandwich is ready.

You can even add capsicum in this. Also, instead of green chillI you can add red chilli flakes. Another variation is after you saute the onions and garlic you can grind it and then mix with corn.
