Corn and Coriander Fritters

This is a delicious corn and coriander fritter recipe from Hannah. Just to remind you, this is the lady who introduced Freddie to the delights of Savoy Cabbage layered with sausagemeat. This is her latest gift to the Great Big Veg Challenge. She should be honoured for her services to vegetables. A VC I think is in order.
Corn and Coriander Fritters
4oz self raising flour
2 tsps caster sugar
2 eggs separated
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 oz butter melted
1 tin sweetcorn drained and 1 handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
butter for pan frying the fritters
Sift flour into a bowl and add the sugar, egg yolks, milk and melted butter. Whisk until everything is incorporated. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites to sift peaks and then gentle fold into the batter mixture. Stir in the sweetcorn and coriander. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and place spoonfuls of the batter a small distance apart in the pan. Cook until golden, turning over half way through cooking when the batter is almost cooked on the top side of the fritter. Keep the fritters warm in a low temperature oven until you have cooked the remaining batter mixture.

  1. Got your message, Charlott, and I will try these. In addition to cooking for personal clients, I also teach a "food appreciation" classes at a private elementary school here in the District of Columbia. This is just the kind of recipe I can use with my students. Come to think of it, your blog is just the thing to inspire our classes. It really is a terrific thing you are doing.

  2. Ed - thank you.
    I would love you to pass on the url to all your young students as they might like to try the many many recipes that Freddie is now enjoying. He was completely phobic about vegetables before we started this blog and it is the sense of community with children around the world that has inspired him to change. He would love it if any of your students sent us a favourite recipe of theirs. We are working through it alphabetically - still on c for corn. But next its a bit tricky - probably chard.

  3. Looks great!

    This is a fantastic blog, great idea and all the best with it.

  4. Charlotte, we also focus on seasonal foods, so that would be another challenge, in addition to moving sequentially through the alphabet. But that's a great idea, passing your URL around to the students. Maybe we could start a conversation. I think our next project is Mexican tamales. (Which also use corn, no?)

  5. Yum! I love me some fritters.


We always love to read your comments - thank you
