Asian Corn FrittersOct 26 2011 by
I’ve been having some weird and unusual cravings the last few weeks (I’m not pregnant, just weird!). One of my cravings has been for Asian inspired food. Specifically pot stickers! Now these corn fritters don’t taste anything like pot stickers but the dipping sauce that is usually served with potstickers is infused in these fritters and the Asian flavors definitely come through.
I didn’t get a chance to serve these to my kids to see if they liked them or not. Why? Because my husband and I ate every single one of these straight out of the pan. We both burnt our tongues and it was soooo worth it. : )
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup finely chopped chives
- sea salt to taste
- 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or tamari
- 3 tbsp brown rice vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1/2 cup non dairy milk (I used oat milk)
- 2 cups sweet corn (you can use frozen or fresh, if frozen thaw first)
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp freshly minced ginger
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil
- In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and chives. Add in the tamari, vinegar, sesame oil,and milk. Stir well.
- Now add the corn, garlic and ginger. You should have a thickish sticky mixture.
- In a large saute pan over medium high heat, heat up enough olive to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot add about 3 tbsp of the fritter mixture to the pan. Add as many more fritters to the pan as will fit.
- Pan fry the fritters for about 2 minutes, flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until each side is golden brown. Note – you want to keep your fritters about 1/2 inch thick or less. If they get too thick the inside won’t cook properly.
- Remove fritters from pan and place on 2 or 3 layers of paper towel (this will help absorb any excess oil).
- These are good served hot from the pan or room temperature.
Makes approximately 10 – 12 fritters.
