Corn Fritters


Prep time:
10 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes | Serves: 4

Vegetarian, Gluten free, Dairy free

Ingredients:

  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 300g creamed corn (1 tin)
  • 1½ cups plain flour (or gluten-free plain flour)*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder*
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ bunch coriander, leaves and stalks (washed well)
  • pepper to taste
  • 420g corn kernels, drained (1 tin)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Smashed Avo:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (½ lime)
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • ½ bunch coriander leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 long red chilli, finely diced (optional)

Method:

  1. Add onion, egg, creamed corn, flour, baking powder, coriander leaves and coriander stalks, salt and pepper in a food processor bowl and process until it forms a batter. Add the drained corn and pulse a few times, just until the corn kernels are mixed through. Set aside for a few minutes while you smash the avo.

  2. Mash the avocado in a small bowl, make it as smooth or as chunky as you like. Mix in lime juice, spring onions, coriander leaves, salt and pepper.

  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, and when hot, drop large tablespoons of mixture into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden. When cooked drain on paper towel while you continue cooking the remaining mixture.

  4. Serve fritters topped with smashed avocado and sprinkled with chilli.

  5. Optional: great with Capsicum Relish

* GLUTEN FREE OPTION – ensure flour and baking powder are gluten free

Tip: On the weekend, I prefer to cook these on the BBQ as I can cook the whole batch at the same time.
