Sweetcorn Fritters and Yoghurt Dip

I am truly loving my new cookbook! I have spent hours just going through it deciding which recipe to make next, as truthfully I want to make them all! However, last weekend we were having our friends over for dinner and I really needed inspiration for a starter and that is when I discovered this recipe for Sweetcorn Fritter and Yoghurt Dip:

Ingredients

  • 100g of Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1 Beaten Egg
  • 4 tbsp of Whole Milk
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Spring Onions (Finely Sliced)
  • 1 Red Chilli (De-seeded and Finely Chopped)
  • 2 tbsp of Fresh Chopped Coriander Leaves
  • 250g of Sweetcorn (Drained and Dried on Kitchen Towel)
  • Salt and Pepper to Season

Ingredients for the Dip

  • 250g of Natural Yoghurt
  • 1/2 Red Chilli (De-seeded and Finely Chopped)
  • Juice of 1/2 Lime
  • 3 tbsp of Fresh Chopped Coriander Leaves
Sweetcorn Fritters and Yoghurt Dip

Method

  1. Begin with making the dip by mixing together all of the ingredients and putting in the fridge for later
  2. The sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl
  3. Season with salt and pepper and mix together
  4. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and add the egg and milk
  5. Whisk together gradually bringing the flour into the wet ingredients until it forms a smooth batter
  6. Add 1 tbsp of Olive Oil and whisk again until smooth
  7. Stir in the spring onions, chilli, coriander and sweetcorn into the batter and mix well
  8. Heat a large frying pan and add olive oil
  9. Once the oil is hot put a heaped tbsp of mixture (per fritter)  into the pan and push down lightly
  10. Fry for 2 minuted on each side until golden
  11. Repeat with the rest of the batter and make sure you keep the cooked fritters warm
  12. Serve the fritters warm with the Yoghurt Dip

The thing that amazed me about this recipe was that at first I was dubious of how they would taste and decided to make them on a ‘let’s see how this goes’ idea, but the Sweetcorn Fritters and Yoghurt Dip tasted really great! They were really easy to make and they can be made in advanced and kept warm which makes them even better for when you are having a dinner party or want a snack available when needed. The consistency when cooked was delicious too and the fritters did not fall apart as I had suspected that they might, also a really cheap recipe for when you are living on a grocery budget! I can definitely recommend that you try them!
