Corn Fritters by Angela Seah Thulin

Spotted fresh corn in the supermarket here - I seldom see them being sold fresh here (usually canned) so i bought one to try, just one :) 

Decided to make a cute girly Bento set - with corn fritters added.

...and I had the remaining corn fritters as my afternoon snack! Together with sweet chili sauce they were simply delicious!

Ingredients - 

1 large fresh uncooked corn (about 250g of kernels)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 - 1 1/2 cup of cold icy water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
some chopped scallions
1 chilli, deseeded, finely chopped

Steps -
1. Slice the corn kernels off the cob into a plate.
2. In a big bowl, mix all the above ingredients together and then add cold icy water in slowly (do not add all the water in at one short). Stir until the batter is smooth. You may not needed all the water. The batter should be thin enough that it is easily pourable and is not gloppy, but not as thin as a crepe batter.
3. Heat up oil in a pot, drop the batter by spoonfuls into hot oil. Fry until golden brown about 3-4 minutes, flip the fritters halfway through.

Done! Dip with tomato sauce or sweet chilli sauce.
