kim chee corn fritters

I had never had a corn fritter, have you? But when I saw them here, here & here, I knew I should try making some.

The issue of Donna Hay that I have just so happened to have the recipe for corn fritters.

It was weird, the image I had of making them wasn't at all like the recipe.

In fact, I didn't have some of the ingredients. (insert pouty face) I hate when that happens. So, I ad-libbed.

Makes 10 fritters or so : adapted from Donna Hay magazine issue 29
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon oil (I used rice)
1/2 cup water
1 egg
2 tablespoons canned corn
50 grams kim chee
1/2 bell pepper, chopped (1/4 if you have the big bell peppers)
1/4 onion, chopped
rice oil to fry

Mix the flour, baking powder, oil, water and egg together.
Add the corn, kim chee, bell pepper and onion to the mixture.
Mix well.
Heat a non-stick pan on low and put some oil in to lightly fry (about 1 tablespoon)
Using a serving spoon drop a spoonful of batter onto the pan and cook like pancakes.
Take off heat and put onto paper towel to drain oil.

Serve with salad and some bi bim kook soo sauce.

NOTES: This was good, but the next time I buy milk and some butter, I'm trying this recipe again.

Thanks FranMag, will give it a check!

I used a frying pan, Dhanggit, I don't have a deep fryer. You are lucky to inherit a deep fryer :)

I often make these corn fritters for weekend lunches. I serve them with sour cream, salsa and avacado. Well done on the improv Kat.
