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

Makes 12

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.
