  • Preparation: 2’
  • Cooking: 20’
  • Total time: 22’

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 cm slice fresh ginger
  • 1/2 lemongrass stalk, outer leaves removed
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 chopped red chilli
  • 2 spring onions
  • 340 g canned sweetcorn
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • salt and pepper

Step 1

Place the garlic, ginger, lemongrass, coriander, chilli and spring onions into the bowl of the Cook Processor fitted with the Multibalde and pulse for 5 seconds until roughly chopped.

Step 2

Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and pulse in 1 second bursts until just evenly mixed.

Step 3

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and grease with a little oil. Spoon a few large tablespoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until lightly browned. Serve with a little extra coriander and spring onions.

Chefs Suggestions

These are best served fresh so they retain the best texture possible, although they can be reheated in the oven if you want to prepare ahead.

Alternative Recipe 1

These fritters make a great starter to a Thai meal, serve alongside the Thai Green Curry for a delicious Thai dinner.

Alternative Recipe 2

If you want to make these like the traditional Thai sweetcorn fritters, with a crisp fried texture, replace the plain flour with rice flour and shallow fry instead.
