Today I want to share how to make delicious sweetcorn fritters like the ones in my bento!
The great thing about these is that they are so easy to work with and could be shaped into just about anything!
If you’re careful, with only a spatula you can get some exceeding pretty fritters!
Sweetcorn fritters with lime dipping sauce!
Makes 8 fritters or 3 large square fritters
Sweetcorn Fritters Ingredients
100g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon cornflour
2 tablespoon oil
2 spring onions
1 red chilli
250 g tinned or frozen sweetcorn
Salt and pepper
For the lime dipping sauce
250g natural Greek yoghurt
Red chilli to taste
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Handful of coriander
Salt and pepper
Drain sweetcorn tins into a sieve or if using frozen cook first, then drain and leave to cool. Set aside to drain fully.
Chop up coriander finely, de seed and slice the red chillies and cut the spring onions on an angle.
To the yoghurt, add the juice of half a lime, the handful of coriander, salt, pepper and finely chopped chilli to taste (up to half of your diced amount) and stir until combined, place back in the fridge!
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Make a well in the middle, add the water and an egg, whisking gradually until a smooth batter.
Add in one tablespoon of oil and whisk until combined.
Stir in the spring onions and chilli.
Dry any moisture still on the sweetcorn and gently fold into the batter.
Heat a large frying pan with one tablespoon of oil or spread a thin layer of oil on a tamagoyaki pan for square fritters.
For disc shapes an ice cream scoop is great to ensure even sizes but a dessert spoon will be fine too.
For square shapes fill half of your tamagoyaki pan with fritter mix.
Using a spatula to compact and shape your fritters, cook until each side is golden brown!
If you’re a little nervous about flipping them before they are ready, keep a little mix cooking as a sample piece to easily flip and measure the other pieces by.
A chefs treat!
Serve with lime dip and enjoy!
Let me know if you enjoy these as much as I do!
