Crispy Corn Fritters

These easy sweet corn fritters are a super quick way to add some extra vegetables to your diet and are ready in a flash.
Servings 8 to 10
Total Time 20 mins

Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • ½ cup self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup spring onion finely sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • sea salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Place the self-raising flour, eggs, half the corn kernels and a pinch of salt into the bowl of a food processor
  • Blend until smooth
  • Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and fold through the remaining corn kernels and the spring onion
  • Mix until well incorporated
  • Pour two tablespoons of oil into a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat
  • Drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan, forming the fritters by slightly spreading the mixture out with the back of a spoon
  • Fit as many as spoonfuls as you can into the pan
  • Cook for about 2 minutes each side or until golden brown
  • Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the rest of the fritters
  • Drizzle with sweet chilli sauce if you wish
  • Serve whilst still warm

Notes

Add shredded cheese like Parmesan or cheddar to your batter for added saltiness and an even crispier texture when fried.
If you would like to spice things up a bit, then add some chopped Jalapeños to your batter.
Keep the oil at a consistent temperature to allow the fritters to cook through and turn golden brown without burning. If the oil is under temperature, the fritters won’t crisp up and if the oil is too hot, the fritters may burn before the insides have fully cooked.
