Healthy Corn Fritters

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.
