Ingredients

  • 2 loaded cups (350 g) frozen sweet corn thawed, or fresh corn off the cob
  • 1 Jalapeno seeded and finely chopped, or use Serrano pepper (remove seeds for less heat)
  • 1/4 cup (6 g) chopped basil or use cilantro
  • 1/4 cup (3.5 g) finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/3 tsp (1/3 to 1/2 tsp) salt , 1/3 to 1/2
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup (80 g) white rice flour
  • 3 tbsp (3 to 4 tbsp) or more cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) or more water

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add all the ingredients corn through baking powder including the baking powder. Toss well to distribute.
  • Add water and mix. Add enough water until the mixture is pasty but not a batter. There will be more corn than batter. (Add a tbsp of flaxseed meal to the mix if the fritters dont hold up too well on the skillet in the next step)
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray or spread oil on the skillet. Drop large spoonfuls of the mixture on the hot skillet and spread to make a roundish shape. Cook until golden brown on both sides. 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Repeat for all fritters. Serve with chutneys, ketchup, guacamole or vegan ranch.
