Corn On Toast

I learnt this recipe almost 32 years ago when I was a novice in the kitchen and there was this really elegant and sophisticated Mrs. Kapoor who took cooking classes in Hyderabad. Even at that time she conducted the classes very professionally and the five recipes I learnt from her are etched in my mind. This starter has always been a sure fire hit.
