This recipe will guide you through creating perfectly crispy and flavorful fritters that will be a hit with everyone.


Preparation Mode:

Begin by preparing the vegetables: if using fresh corn, cut the kernels off the cobs; if using canned or frozen corn, drain and rinse well or thaw thoroughly. Finely chop the green onions, red bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro. In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn kernels, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, sugar, ground cumin, and ground coriander.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Add the chopped green onions, red bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro to the batter, mixing until evenly distributed.

Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a small spoonful of batter into the skillet; if it sizzles and browns quickly, the oil is ready. Using a tablespoon or a small scoop, drop portions of batter into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the skillet.

Fry the fritters in batches, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Keep the fritters warm in a low oven while you fry the remaining batches.

Once all the fritters are cooked, serve them hot, garnished with lime wedges and a dollop of sour cream. Sprinkle a pinch of chili powder and paprika over the sour cream for added flavor and a pop of color. Enjoy your sweetcorn fritters as a delicious and comforting dish that brings a burst of flavor and texture with every bite.

These fritters can be served on their own, with a dipping sauce, or as a complement to a larger meal. Whether you’re hosting a brunch, looking for a quick snack, or serving a unique side dish, sweetcorn fritters are sure to impress with their blend of sweet corn, aromatic spices, and satisfying crunch.
