Asian Corn Fritters

Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

Don't you just love a little fritter? They can be the perfect snack food, a great appetiser and they are so easy to make. Totally satisfying.

We have been on a bit of a 'wish we were able to travel' kick at the moment and this is one of those recipes! You can thank me after you make them. The sambal and little salad ended up elsewhere I think, so they are amazing too for the purpose of just amping up the savour of the flavour!

I am in fact craving them as I write, which is a job hazard really. Sigh....better go and make some more I guess.

Tried any of our other fritters? Could be time!
