Crispy, chewy chilli sweetcorn fritters, topped with creamy Swiss cheese and a kick of spicy relish.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins
- Vegetable or groundnut oil enough to cover the bottom of the pan, half an inch deep
- 30 g self raising flour
- 40 g cornmeal flour
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 tsp mild chilli powder or more if you'd like them hot
- 2 1/2 tbsp whole milk
- 1 medium egg
- 2 spring onions
- 355 g can sweetcorn in water
- 2 burger buns
- 4 slices Swiss cheese I used Leerdammer Burger and Toastie
- 2 tbsp any spicy relish
- Olives to serve
Heat the oil in the pan over a medium heat.
In a bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper and chilli together.
In a separate bowl, whisk the milk and egg together, then mix into the dry ingredients.
Drain the sweetcorn and mash ever so slightly with a fork to break up a little (this is important, I've learned, as it helps avoid the fritters popping in the pan).
Stir the corn and chopped spring onions (whites and greens) into the mix.
Spoon a quarter of the mix into the pan, letting it spread out by itself.
Fry for a minute or two until golden underneath, then flip and cook until evenly golden.
Place on kitchen paper to drain while you fry the other three.
To put the sandwiches together, toast the bun lightly, then stack fritter, cheese, fritter, cheese, relish.
Garnish with the olives.
