Do you go through a few evenings when you just want to eat something delicious but cannot decide what? Or those afternoons when you are not too hungry but want to savor something light and fun. Or are you running out of ideas for snacks/starter dishes for your next house party? Well if YES is the answer to all these questions then this is the perfect dish to try out.
Well i go through these days most of the time when i just cannot decide what to cook & eat. Recently when i was food hunting in my own kitchen i found nothing exciting and then came across a can of sweetcorn and suddenly the corn fritters recipe shown on Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course which i watch religiously struck my mind. Well let me tell you if you are a newbie to cooking this is the perfect dish to try to boost your confidence because not just its super easy to make but it hardly takes 10 minutes to dish this out from scratch and also all the ingredients involved are basic & easily available in your own kitchen.
What are we cooking? – Corn Fritters..!!
What are we using?
A can of sweetcorn
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
4 tbsp milk
A bunch of coriander (finely chopped)
A bunch of spring onion (finely chopped)
1 tomato (finely chopped)
2 green chilies (finely chopped)
What are we doing?
Step 1- Sift a cup of flour and add 1/2 tsp baking powder. To it add salt, pepper, an egg, 4 tbsp of milk and mix it well to make a smooth batter.
Step 2- To the batter add a drizzle of olive oil to relax the mixture. To it add your washed and drained can of corn, finely chopped spring onion, chilies, coriander and tomatoes and mix it well to form a smooth batter. Make sure the batter is not too runny. It should have the consistency of a cake batter (To adjust you can add flour to thicken and milk to thin down the mixture).
Step 3- Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and add a spoonful of the mix to the oil. Fry each side till golden brown.
There you go ! Your Corn Fritters are ready in a jiffy. Serve it with a dip you love. I have used a ready made sweet chili garlic dip(as seen in the picture). Another dip that goes really well with this dish is a yogurt based dip that you can make in a minute. Take a cup of low fat Greek yogurt, to it add a finely chopped green chili, some finely chopped coriander and the juice of half a lemon. Mix it well and there you have your own home made creamy yogurt dip bursting with flavors.
