Makes 6-8 fritters

A great snack which is super easy to prepare and tastes simply wonderful. This treat can also be served as an appetiser or even a light lunch if you accompany it with a fresh salad. I enjoy these yummy fritters with my spicy mango dipping sauce.

1 can
sweet corn, drained
(400 g or 14 oz)
3/4 cup
plain flour
(90 g)
1/2 tsp
baking powder
egg, lightly beaten
4-6 tbsp
1 tbsp
vegetable oil
spring onions, finely chopped
fresh red chilli, finely chopped
garlic clove, finely minced
4 tbsp
fresh coriander, finely chopped
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
black pepper, freshly ground

After draining the sweet corn from a can, pat it dry with paper towels to get rid of the excess moisture.

In a bowl, sift the flour and baking powder, then add the salt, pepper, garlic, egg and milk (start with 4 tbsp and see if you need a little more, depending on the size of egg used). Whisk together to form a somewhat thick but smooth batter. Add the oil and whisk it in to relax the batter. Then add the sweet corn, spring onions, chopped chilli and coriander, fold them in. 

Heat a pan and drizzle in a light drizzle of oil. Scoop the mixture with a spoon and gently flatten on the pan. Allow them to cook for about 1-2 minutes per side or until golden before flipping them over and cooking the next side. Keep going until all are done.

Serve with a dip and a salad.

Enjoy! :)


Salaam. Thanks for the new recipe. Can I use frozen peas? If so, do I need to boil before mixing?

W/Salaam, yes you can use frozen peas, I would boil them first before mixing to ensure they are soft as the fritters do not cook for too long.

Hi Fawzia, I'm allergic to egg.. Is there anything I can replace the egg with?

Hi, you could use 2 tbsp thick plain yoghurt.

Assalam Aleykum. If I wish to use frozen sweet corn for this recipe, do I need to pre-boil them? Jazakallah
