Sweetcorn, Shallot & Chilli Fritters With Tomato & Shallot Chutney:

Makes: 6

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

You’ll Need:

For The Chutney:

1 large eschalion shallot, finely sliced

1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

40g golden caster sugar

85ml white wine vinegar

150g cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped

For The Fritters:

1 large eschalion shallot

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

A small bunch coriander

1 chilli, seeds removed and finely diced

2 tsp mild curry powder

Sea salt & cracked black pepper

325g can sweetcorn in water

75g gram flour (chickpea flour)

To Serve:

Sour cream or vegan coconut yoghurt

Diced chilli

Coriander, roughly chopped

What To Do:

1.) Firstly, place all the chutney ingredients in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan over a medium heat. Add 1 tbsp water and bring the ingredients to the boil.

2.) Lower the heat and allow to gently simmer and reduce for approximately 10 – 15 minutes – you want to reduce the liquid, breakdown the tomatoes and achieve and thick, sticky jam consistency. Remove from the heat and allow to cool and thicken further.

3.) Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan. Gently fry the shallots in the oil for 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and fry for a further 1 minute.

4.) Finely chop the stems of the coriander and add to the pan along with the chilli, curry powder and seasoning. Fry for a final minute.

5.) Spoon the shallot mixture into a large bowl and sprinkle in the gram flour and roughly chopped coriander leaves. Tip in the sweetcorn along with the liquid in the can and stir through all the ingredients. Whisking with a fork, add 50ml of cold water to create a batter. Leave to sit for 5 minutes for the gram flour to absorb some of the liquid.

When The Batter Is Ready:

6.) When the batter is ready, melt the remaining coconut oil in a clean frying pan. In batches, spoon a heaped tablespoon worth of fritter mixture into the hot pan. Turn down the heat to medium and fry for 2 – 3 minutes – the fritters are ready to be flipped when you can easily get a spatula underneath. Cook on the second side for a further 2 minutes.

7.) Place the cooked fritters on a lined baking tray and put in a warm oven whilst you make the remaining fritters. The mixture makes 6 decent-size fritters.

8.) To serve, stack the fritters on a plate and top with a spoon of tomato and shallot chutney and sour cream. Sprinkle with a little extra chilli for heat and coriander for freshness.

Last but not least, enjoy.

    Ooh, I made some sweetcorn and chilli fritters a few years ago and they were super tasty! I made them again a couple of times soon after that, but for some reason it’s now been a very long time since… I forgot about them! Thanks for reminding me! (Hubby will be delighted, he’s a big fan of sweetcorn) xx
