Sweetcorn fritters - recipe

These golden sweetcorn fritters are a real crowd-pleaser and are the recipe most often requested by Marc!  The crispy batter, juicy sweetcorn and hit of chilli is a match made in heaven.

They're also really easy to make and work well for canapes, starters or even breakfasts.

Sold yet?  Go on, give them a go.  Guarantee you'll love them, or your money back (except not the second part).

Ingredients (Serves four for starters):
125g self-raising flour
1 egg
100ml milk
340g tin of sweetcorn, well drained
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1 red chilli finely chopped (more or less, to your taste)
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to season
Vegetable oil to fry

Sift the flour into a bowl.

Make a well and add the egg.

Gradually beat together, adding the milk a little at a time, until you have a lovely smooth batter.

Add the sweetcorn, spring onions and chilli and a good pinch of salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan.  Drop in spoonfuls of the batter and press down gently to form fritters.

Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.

Serve with a simple salsa, or chilli sauce to dip.

Eat, enjoy.
