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 very little time on their hands.

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.

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.
