A light crumbly Savory Tart with a veg corn filling in a creamy bรฉchamel sauce and topped with melting cheese…Mmmmmm…need I say more! An absolute crowd pleaser and an instant hit in any party I make! ๐Ÿ™‚
It can be served warm out of the oven, but tastes great even at room temperature. Serve it as an appetizer or make it a meal by teaming it with a light tangy salad!

    One question Ruchi. Are beans and lentils soaked/cooked or just laid as it is?
