A popular snack, these crisp, cheesy fritters bursting with flavors of sweet corn, have a secret ingredient, the ‘shezwan sauce’, that gives them the deep spicy-chilli, garlicky flavor that is absolutely amazing. Adding a pop of cheese then transforms these fritters to a whole new level of enjoying the flavors of summer.
Preparation and cooking Time: 20-25 minutes.
2 cups fresh corn kernels. Frozen or canned corns can be used as replacement
1/2 cup grated potatoes
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup green onion, chopped
3/4 cup whole wheat flour or (all purpose flour)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3-4 tbsp Shezwan sauce
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup butter milk
Salt as per taste
1cup Mozzarella Cheese or shredded processed cheese
3-4 tbsp oil for shallow fry.
Add corn kernels to a large bowl, and mix in the rest of dry ingredients
Heat 1-2 tbsp of oil in a pan
Place a scoop of the corn fritter mixture into the hot oil
Press down on the fritters with a spatula or spoon to form patty shape
Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes over medium heat until golden brown
Carefully flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side
Once both sides are golden brown, transfer the fritters to paper towel-lined plate
Repeat the process with remaining mixture, adding more oil to the pan as needed
Serve the fritters immediately with hot sauce, greek yogurt and salad.
