Sometimes I get board of plain old meat and three veg. Most weekends I try to cook things a little more exciting, but choose things that don't take too long to prepare.
Fritters are my go to side when it's the end of the month before payday, and the fridge is almost bare. I love them and also enjoy them cold right from the fridge. They are also a hit with the teens.
*1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
*1 cup of milk
*2 cups of frozen corn kernels
*1/2 tsp of chilli powder (optional)
*Salt and pepper to taste
*Olive oil for shallow frying
Sift flour into a large bowel, seasoning with salt, pepper and chilli powder.
In a jug, whisk the milk and eggs together until combined.
Pour over flour and stir until smooth.
Add the corn and stir well to combine.
Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a non stick frying pan. Heat over medium heat until hot.
Using 1/4 cup of mixture per fritter, gently pour the mixture into the oil and cook for about three minutes on each side until golden and firm to touch.
Serve as a side dish or on their own with a relish sauce or tzatziki dip.
