Tasty Tuesdays!

Corn Fritters!
(with avacado mash)

I made these bad boys for my lovie one night when he came into town.
They were a big hit!


1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin (omit if you are using basil)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 milk or water
2 cups of fresh corn kernels cut from 2-3 cobs of corn (frozen defrosted corn is ok)
1/2 cup of green onions
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro (or fresh chopped basil)
1 Tbsp sugar
Oil for frying

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and cumin in a bowl.

Add eggs and milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Add the corn, scallions and cilantro and stir until combined.

Heat a large frying pan with a layer of the oil. 
When the oil is shimmering (not smoking) you are ready to fry the fritters.

Drop the fritters into the oil pressing down to flatten. 

Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side. 
They should be nice and brown, then flip them and cook another 2 minutes.

Garnish with a dollop of "avacado mash" (aka Guacamole)
and serve.
