Fritters are a batter, normally deep fried with bread crumbs. I wanted to make some healthier fritters, using all natural ingredients and shallow frying them for a delicious moist flavour, without having them deep fried.
They are sweetcorn, coriander and onion based and i decided to cook them inside an onion ring.
This helps to keep the batter contained into a round shape and also adds extra flavour and texture!
The sweetcorn gives these little bites a nice crunch whilst the onion is moist and sweet, but the chilli flakes give a little kick. yum
This recipe is perfect for a lunch with salad, rice or to use as canape's at a party as they are simple, easy and quick to make.
I combined these tasty fritters with some homemade coriander drizzle!
