Sweetcorn Fritters

Sweetcorn fritters is a great way to get some veggies into breakfast or snacks. These soft fritters let the sweet juicy corn kernels burst in your mouth. It is simple and easy to make especially if you are in a rush and need to throw breakfast together.

It is a sweet or savoury snack that the whole family or your friends will love. It can be served for breakfast, snack or as a starter.

For the Sweet:

You can spread some butter, syrup, cream, jam or honey on the fritters or dust with some icing sugar. Sweetcorn fritters can also be eaten with a fruit salad, pap (corn paste gruel), custard, etc.

For the savoury sweetcorn fritter:

Serve with tomato relish, hot pepper sauce, guacamole, a vegetable salad, a light soup etc. I love it with Sweet Thai chilli sauce.
