For the cheesy corn filling

  1. Take the cornflour in a small bowl.
  2. Add 2 tbsp of milk, mix well and keep aside. Ensure there are no lumps.
  3. Heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan.
  4. Add the sweet corn kernels and sauté on a medium flame for 3 minutes. They will turn light golden in colour.
  5. Add the milk, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the cheese slices. Alternatively, you can also use grated processed cheese.
  7. Then add the olives. We have used black olives in this recipe.
  8. Add the jalapenos, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  9. Add the basil. Do not chop them and keep out for a long time or else they will turn black.
  10. Season with salt and pepper, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally. Be cautious with the amount of salt as cheese slice already has salt.
  11. Add the cornflour-milk mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally. It acts as a thickening agent and helps in reducing the mixture.
  12. Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions and keep aside.

Wow.. These tarts are the most amazing ones i have ever had. This savory tarts have an amazing blend of all the ingredients. The olives, Jalapenos imparts a specific taste with the corn in the cheesy white sauce. Tarts filled with this cheesy corn filling and the caramelised onions on top gives a twist in the taste. In shot this starter is totally worth the effort you put in..
