Easy to make Sweetcorn Fritters Recipe
A quick lunch or simple summer dinner, these sweetcorn fritters look harmless but pack a punch with the addition of some warming chilli.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, making a well in the centre for the eggs. Add the eggs and half the milk. Beat until smooth, then gradually whisk in the remaining milk until you get a thick batter. Fold in the corn, spring onions, chilli, lime juice, feta and herbs.
Add around two tablespoons of mixture to a medium frying pan and cook until brown, flip over and heat until cooked throughout.
Serve with tomatoes and salad for a light meal.
