Corn Fritters

I always keep frozen veggies in my freezer. And corn is a must. I love making these fritters not just because they are so simple to make but are light and serve as a perfect last minute supper.

Serves : 1-2 people


100 gm self raising flour (if using plain flour, add 1/2 tsp baking powder to it)
225 gm corn kernels
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 egg beaten
50 ml milk
1 tbsp melted butter
1/4 tsp chilli flakes ( or as per taste)
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup chopped basil or parsley (optional)

If using fresh corn, peel the husks, cut the kernels and cook in boiling water for 4-5 minutes.

In case of frozen corn, follow instructions on the packet to defrost (a couple of minutes in the microwave should be enough to defrost)

In a bowl, sift in the self raising flour (add baking powder if using plain flour). Add the beaten egg, milk and melted butter to the flour. If the mixture is too thick add a little amount of milk to make it smooth. Fold in the corn, chilli flakes, salt, pepper, cheese and basil.

On a non stick griddle or skillet, pour 2 tbsp of the mixture and flatten slightly. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side till they are slightly golden brown.

These taste good on their own but try them with some mint chutney. :)
