Ready on the table in less than 20 minutes and made with super simple ingredients, these awesome Sweetcorn Fritters will easily become a family favourite! 

If there’s a fritters recipe that I keep making again and again, it’s Gordon Ramsay’s Sweetcorn Fritters with Yogurt dip!

These sweetcorn fritters take only 15 mins to make, a bunch of ingredients and .Plus, you won’t mess around the kitchen as you only need a bowl and a frying pan!

Whisk flour with baking powder and seasoning, add eggs and milk, then fold in all the veggies and stir everything together.

I mean, what’s better than 1-bowl recipes? They’re simply perfect for busy people with little time.

This Sweetcorn Fritters with Yogurt dip recipe was adapted from Gordon Ramsay ‘Ultimate Cookery Course’ TV show.

I have slightly changed the ingredients, adding some lime zest and Greek yogurt, to make it even more flavourful and healthy.

You can also easily turn this recipe into a diary-free and gluten-free one, just substitute milk, yogurt and flour with your favorite free-from alternatives. I did it and the result was just as tasteful as the original!

And while these sweetcorn fritters are delicious on its own, I like to serve mine with a flavour-packed yogurt dip, which takes less than 2 minutes to make!

They also pair super well with my guacamole dip. And I’m pretty confident kids (and grown-ups!) would love to dip these crispy fritters in a classic combo of homemade ketchup & mayonnaise.
