Indian-spiced sweetcorn fritters

This sweetcorn fritters recipe is a lightly spiced, delicious and easy meal to make for the whole family. If you blend the batter, which I did to make it easier for my baby to digest, it’s also a great hidden vegetable recipe for picky eaters.

  • 200 g sweetcorn tinned, fresh or frozen. If you're going to blend the corn into the batter cook the sweetcorn first
  • 120 g gram flour (chickpea flour) sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 160 ml water
  • Sunflower oil for frying

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together with the sweetcorn and whisk in the water gradually until you have a thick batter. You can blend them at this stage for more of a pancake like result but I much prefer them unblended.

  2. You can deep fry these but I prefer to shallow fry them. Heat a tbsp of sunflower oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add a tbsp of batter, fry for three minutes over a low-medium heat, then flip and cook the other side for a further three minutes until golden brown.
  3. Serve with rice and a yoghurt dip.
