Corn Fritters

I made these sometime ago when corns were at their peak during summer. I will usually grill or boil it but this time I made some fritters out of it. I used a bit of oil to pan fried them in a non stick pan and it turn out more like a pancakes. The fritters were crispy on the edges and tender in the middle. We had this with my homemade chili sauce.

Ingredients:

2 cups corn kernels
1/2 cup chopped shrimps
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 small onion
¼ cup chopped cilantro
4 spring onions – chopped
2 red chilies – chopped
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
Salt and pepper to taste
enough water to hold the batter together



1. Put one cup of corn kernels, shrimps, and onions in a food processor. Give it a few pulses until all ingredients are roughly chopped. Remove to a mixing bowl.
2. Add in all the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Set it aside to rest for 15 minutes.
3. Heat up some vegetable oil (just enough oil) to coat the bottom of a non stick frying pan. Drop 1 tbsp of batter into the pan. Fry both side of the fritters until golden brown (about 2 minute per side).
4. Transfer fritters to paper towels to drain the oil. Serve immediately with some chili sauce.
