Easy Sweetcorn Fritters

Here’s my recipe for Easy Sweetcorn Fritters that are gluten free, made using rice flour, sweetcorn, egg and spices of your choice.  (You can also use cake flour if you prefer)

South African’s love fritters and sweetcorn fritters are kind of the perfect side or snack for Heritage Month.

I used the OG Koo Sweetcorn for this recipe – keep in mind there is a difference between canned corn and sweet creamed corn.

Celebrate summer with this quick and easy 1 bowl recipe, that can be tweaked easily. Use cake flour instead of rice flour, and you can pretty much use any herbs and spices you like to flavour.

The sweetcorn fritters are shallow fried in coconut oil and then topped with sweet chilli sauce and mayo.

Enjoy making them,
