These are perfect for a light meal and can be served with chilli sauce or sour cream.
But for tonight, I will be serving them as a part of our Christmas picnic. Yes, my family and I are heading of to the local park for Christmas carols; along with our picnic basket! Merry Christmas to you all.
1/2 cup plain self raising flour
1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground cumin
3/4 cup light milk
2 eggs, separated
425g can corn kernels, rinsed and drained
5 french onion bulbs, sliced thinly and chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander
Sift the flours, soda and cumin into a bowl. Gradually whisk in milk and egg yolks until batter is smooth. In a different bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; set aside. Stir corn, onion and coriander into flour/milk batter. Now fold in the egg whites. Pour 2 tbsp of batter for each fritter into heated oiled large fry pan. Spread batter into a round shape. Cook fritter for 2 minutes each side. Continue until no batter remains. Serve with chutney, chilli sauce, lite sour cream or fresh coriander leaves! Roughly 60-65 calories per fritter.
