- 100 gr wholemeal flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 free-range egg beaten
- 80 ml whole fresh milk
- 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 spring onions thinly sliced
- 1 red chili pepper seeded and finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 240 gr sweetcorn kernels drained and dried on paper towels
For the yogurt dip:
- 240 ml greek yogurt
- 1/2 red chili pepper seeded and finely chopped
- juice & zest of 1/2 lime
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Create a well in the centre of the flour, and add in the beaten egg and milk.
Whisk, gradually bringing the flour into the wet mixture until it forms a smooth and silky batter.
Add 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and whisk the batter until smooth, adding a little more milk if necessary.
Fold in the chopped spring onions, chilli pepper, coriander, and sweetcorn kernels into the batter and mix until just combined.
Heat 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
Place a spoonful of the batter per fritter into the hot pan, flattening the patties slightly with a spatula, and spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
Cook the fritters for 2 minutes then flip them on the other side and continue cooking them an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re crispy and golden brown.
Transfer the fritters, onto a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb the oil in excess, then serve them with the yogurt dip on the side.
