Sweetcorn fritters, a great way to get some vegetables into your breakfast or snacks. They are soft and fluffy also simple and easy to make especially if you are in a rush and need to throw breakfast together. When you bite into your fritter, the sweet juicy corn kernels burst in your mouth, how delicious is that?
It can be a sweet or savoury snack and your whole family or friends will love. Sweetcorn fritters can be served for breakfast, snack or as a starter. They can also be fried either as patties or balls, see below.
For sweet fritters, 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 savoury fritters, reduce the sugar to 1 teaspoon and serve with tomato relish, hot pepper sauce, guacamole, a vegetable salad, a light soup etc. I love it with Sweet Thai chilli sauce.
