Thai Sweetcorn Fritters

Thai Sweetcorn Fritters

I just came back from an amazing holiday in Bangkok and Phuket, still with the appetite for Thai food, so I whipped up these Thai sweetcorn fritters which is my absolute favourite Thai appetizer. This recipe makes around 12-16 fritters and can be made in less than an hour.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 55g plain flour
  • 2 tsp Thai red curry paste
  • 5 tbsp coconut milk
  • 400g canned sweetcorn (drained)
  • 4 spring onions (finely sliced)
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander (chopped)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • Thai sweet chilli sauce (for serving)

Directions:

  • Put the egg, flour, red curry paste, coconut milk and half the sweetcorn in a food processor and process until a smooth, thick batter forms.
  • Stir the spring onions into the batter with the remaining sweetcorn, coriander and basil. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan and drop in tablespoonfuls of the batter and shallow fry them for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn a golden brown colour.
  • Serve the fritters hot with Thai sweet chilli sauce.

  1. Very tasty! I added 1 tspn ground cumin too. Served them with a simple green salad and chutney. The fritters didn’t really hold their shape but they were delish! Great vegetarian alternative.
