So tasty, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside! These fritters are super easy and a great recipe for the kids to get involved in.
Basil and sweet corn fritters
1 cup plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp celery salt
½ tsp mustard powder
½ tsp garlic powder
200ml chilled soda water
250g corn kernels
1/4 each chopped coriander and basil
½ red onion, finely chopped
2 egg whites, whisked to soft peaks
Oil, to fry
Freshly cracked black pepper
Combine flour, bicarb and spices in a large bowl. Season with pepper then make a well in the centre and whisk in the cooled soda water to form a smooth batter.
Add corn, herbs and onion and toss to coat. Gently fold though the whisked egg whites.
Heat oil in a large, deep frypan over high heat. In batches cook fritters (an ice-cream scoop is an easy way to measure out the batter, but if you don’t have one each fritter is about 3 tbsp of batter). Drain on paper towel.
