sweetcorn and halloumi fritters
Sweetcorn and Halloumi Fritters (serves 2 for brunch) Preparation Time: 15mins Cooking Time: 10mins
You will need: 2 fresh corn on the cobs, kernels sawn off (alternatively use a large tin of drained sweetcorn) half a packet of halloumi, cubed 1 chilli, diced 2 spring onions, finely sliced a small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped 2 eggs 90g plain flour 1 tsp baking powder 75ml milk For the avocado crème fraîche 1 avocado, flesh scooped out 1 lime, juiced a few tbsp crème fraîche
Make it! Make your avocado crème fraîche by blitzing together the crème fraîche, lime juice, and avocado. Season and set aside. For the fritters, blitz half of the sweetcorn in the processor until you get a rough, sweetcorny pulp. Then combine the sweetcorn pulp with the rest of the sweetcorn, along with the chilli, spring onions, coriander and cubed cheese. Mix together. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and flour, then slowly beat in the milk to form a batter. Add the sweetcorn and cheese mixture and stir to combine. Season heavily. Drop a ladle off the mix into a hot non-stick frying pan and cook on both sides for a couple of minutes. Set aside on kitchen towel while you make the rest. You should have about 6 fritters by the end. Serve with the avo crème fraîche immediately!
