Today I made my slow cooker ribs again for dinner. I wanted to make some tasty sides to go with them, so decided on a potato salad and these maxing corn fritters. They were quite messy to make, but absolutely worth it! The kids loved them, and ate every last scrap. They are not something I would make on a regular basis, but lovely as a treat. I would use a pan of oil that you can discard afterwards rather than a deep fat fryer, the mess was unreal!
90gplain flour 1 tablespoonsugar 1 teaspoonbaking powder 2 eggs 120mlmilk, 1 teaspoon salt 4 large tins of sweetcorn, drained 3 teaspoonsChopped Fresh Chives Oil, For Frying
Heat about 2 inches of oil to a medium high heat in a large pan. Sift together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Season with salt & pepper. Stir in the milk & eggs and mix until it is all combined. Add the sweetcorn and chives and mix so that the corn is coated. The mixture will be still quite wet, and wont hold together well, that is how it is supposed to be. Drop a large spoonful of the batter into the oil. repeat this, doing no more than 4 at a time. Once they have turned golden in the oil, remove & drain on kitchen paper. Serve when all the mixture has been fried and drained.
