Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients with the remaining spring onions as a salsa, season and serve with the fritters.
