How has your week started? My Monday was fine, possibly better than usual, but I'm now happy to be able to relax a little with some blog writing. To spice up your Monday I bring you spicy chilli sweetcorn fritters. They contain sweetcorn, pepper, chilli and smoked chilli paste with some seasoning. I used an egg and spelt flour for binding. These fritters held together very well during the frying and were nice and firm in the end. I enjoyed them with black bean rice and some chipotle ketchup. I thought that these were quite nice summer fritters.
Recipe for about 8 fritters
140 g sweetcorn
1 romano pepper
1 green chilli
2 garlic cloves
1-2 tsp smoked chilli paste
Sprinkle of smoked paprika
Sprinkle of salt
3 tbsp spelt flour
Vegetable oil for frying
Chop the romano pepper, chilli, onion and garlic finely and quickly fry them in olive oil until softened.
Mix the sweetcorn, smoked chilli paste and seasoning in and let cool.
Add the egg and spelt flour and heat vegetable oil in a pan.
Shape fritters from the mix and fry them on both sides until golden brown.
Remove any excess oil with a kitchen towel.
Enjoy in whichever combination you like!
