Crispy crunchy sweetcorn fritters, perfect for a summer mid-week meal.
  • 2 sweetcorn cobs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • 3-4 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of ground coriander
  • juice of half a lemon
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c / gas mark 4 and have a baking tray lined with parchment ready.
  2. Take the kernels off the cobs by running a knife vertically down the sides, into a large bowl. Beat the egg and then add that to the mixture with the rest of the ingredients, mix well and add a small amount of oil. You need a very thick mixture, a bit like cake batter, add more flour or loosen with milk as needed.
  3. Heat a large frying pan on a high heat, add a tablespoon of sunflower or vegetable oil to the pan.
  4. Dollop heaped tablespoons into the pan, you want to cook about 3 at a time. Flatten down slightly with a wet knife, fry for a few minutes on one side, try not to move the fritters otherwise they won't brown. Flip over and fry again on the other side for 3 minutes.
  5. Transfer to the baking tray and cook the other fritters.
  6. Bake them in the oven for 5 minutes to cook them through.
Serve on top of lots of salad, we also had ours with fried halloumi.
Serves 2
