- 7.4g (1.6g saturated)
- 9g (1.5g sugars)
Per fritter (for 12)
- 100g self-raising flour
- 1 free-range egg, beaten
- 3 tbsp soured cream
- 2-3 tbsp whole milk (optional)
- 2 sweetcorn, kernels removed with a sharp knife
- Bunch spring onions, sliced
- Olive oil for frying
- Handful cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1 avocado, finely chopped
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
- Juice 1 lime
- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- Handful fresh coriander, chopped
- Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and soured cream, then mix gradually using a wooden spoon, adding the milk if the mixture seems a little thick. Mix in the sweetcorn and half the spring onions.
- Heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry a heaped tbsp of the mixture in batches for 2-3 minutes, turning halfway, until golden brown.
- Combine the remaining ingredients with the remaining spring onions as a salsa, season and serve with the fritters.
