Corn Fritters

I have found a new recipe for corn fritters and, being bored of 'the usual', decided to give them a whirl.

2/3 C self raising flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 C water
4 corn cobs with corn cut from cob
1/2 onion, finely diced or minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil spray

Mix the flour, egg and water to form a batter. Whisk thoroughly and set aside for 10 minutes.
Add corn, onions and season to taste. Cook about 1/3 C patties on medium heat for about 5 minutes each side or until golden brown.

Variations: I was really pleased with these but if I wasn't a vege I would recommend some crispy bacon to be added to the mix.

Variation 2: What about adding some curry flavors and serving with a raita on the side.

Variation 3: The original recipe called for lots of coriander but as I am not a fan, and was concerned that there would be 'too much' green I left it out. Obviously I could have used parsley instead.

Serving 1: Serve with a green salad

Serving 2: Serve with a tomato, basil and avocado salsa, even with some spicy wedges

Serving 3: Serve as a burger
