Corn fritters recipe with step by step photos. Corn fritters recipe or sweet corn fritters recipe is a popular snack around the globe. Usually eggs are used in making corn fritters. Corn fritters recipe I am sharing today is more of Indian version.
I usually make sweet corn vada whenever I have excess corn. This time I had some zucchini too, so made these easy corn fritters. Instead of deep frying or pan frying I have used appe pan/ paniyarakal to make these corn fritters. By using appe pan you can make very crispy fritters with very less oil.
This corn fritters recipe is fairly simple. You need just 15 minutes to get the mixture ready. If you do not have zucchini you can grated cucumber, cabbage or just corn and onion too. I have used minimum seasoning here. You can increase or change the seasoning as per your taste. As I said above I have used my appe pan for frying these. You can deep fry the fritters too if you wish. One more option would be shallow frying in a pan. Frying corn fritters i appe pan or shallow frying takes more time than deep frying. Since we use less oil, the frying should be done in mediul flame with frequent flipping.
To make corn fritters recipe I have used boiled sweet corn kernels, grated zucchini, onion, green chilli, ginger garlic and cilantro leaves. I have kept the spice level to minimum too. If you wish you can add pepper powder, cumin, chilli powder etc. Some corn flour is added for binding. You can even add gram flour or rice flour instead of corn flour. Do not add water in the veg mixture. Grated zucchini leaves out water and that is enough for mixing and binding. Corn kernels tend to pop up so make sure you stand a feet away while frying. If you are a beginner cook, you can just pulse the boiled corn once and then make corn fritters.
Serve corn fritters immediately after making with tea or coffee.
