(About Bruschetta : This is a food that consists of toasted/grilled bread topped with a variety of sauces. The sauce can be refrigerated in glass containers for several days . Can be served for evening snacks or as starters)
Ingredients : (Serves 3)
2 Tomatoes , Salt to taste , 2 pinches Crushed Pepper , 2 Garlic cloves ,
1/4th Cup Chopped Onion , ½ th tspn Dried Oregano , A pinch of Ajwain , 1 tbspn Oil ,
½ tspn red chilly powder , ½ tspn sugar ,1/2 tspn All purpose flour .
6 slices of bread , ½ Cup mozarella cheese , ½ cup steamed corn niblets.

Procedure :
Boil Tomatoes in water to cook. Blend them in a Mixer to make a puree.

Heat Oil in a pan . Add finely chopped Garlic and onion. Cook well. Add all purpose flour to the pan and stir it well . (This acts as a thickening agent and by mixing it to hot oil we remove the raw flavour out of the flour) . Add Tomato Puree , salt , oregano , Ajwain , sugar , chilly powder . Let it come to a boil. The sauce is ready. Let the sauce cool down before you spread it on the bread.

Remove the edges of the bread . Toast the bread slices on both sides . You may do it on a Tawa. It becomes more crisp if you toast it in the oven (375 degree Approx 3 mins each side).

Spread the tomato sauce on one side of the toast . Top it with a layer of mozarella cheese and spread some corn niblets over the cheese. Bake it in the oven for another 5-7 mins (till the chees on top melts) . You may garnish it with dried oregano and red chilly flakes.

Bruschetta is ready to serve. Tastes best when served hot.

Variations : Advisable variations in sauce may include spinach sauce. You may use white bread or wheat bread as a base.
