These light and fluffy sweetcorn fritters are a delicious addition to a suppertime salad. Pairing brilliantly with home-baked ham, they would also make a fantastic lunchtime snack.
Incredibly easy to make, the ingredients for this recipe can be easily changed to accommodate whatever flavour you are in the mood for – curried fritters are a personal favourite! This variety is a refreshing mix of sweetcorn, parsley and spring onion with a little cayenne pepper.
