This was one of my favourite quick healthy dishes to make a while back, but some how it slipped from my mind until recently. It is one of those easy portable foods that can be cooked in seconds and taken on a picnic with a salad. The reason it has become forefront in my mind again is because I was looking for a vegetarian picnic idea and I remembered making this for my brother once. Naturally I had mine with smoked salmon and goats’ cheese, but his I served with a spicy guacamole. It is also a really nice addition to a brunch menu.
- 300gm corn kernels
- ½ small red onion diced finely
- 1 egg
- ½ cup SR flour
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until just combined.
- Heat a sandwich maker.
- Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto the hotplate, allow a little room for the fritters to spread. After 1 minute you can close the lid on the sandwich maker and cook both sides at once.
- The mixture makes approximately five corn fritters.
Fritters can also be cooked in a frying pan with oil for a crunchy result.
