Ingredients

  • 200g tinned sweetcorn
  • 40g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 3 large free-range eggs, 1 of them lightly beaten
  • Handful fresh coriander, chopped, plus extra leaves to garnish
  • Grated zest ½ lime, plus 2 lime wedges to serve and 1 to squeeze
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced (squeeze over lime juice to prevent browning)

For the chutney

  • 30g fresh mint leaves
  • 15g fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1 small green chilli
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 200g tinned sweetcorn
  • 40g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 3 large free-range eggs, 1 of them lightly beaten
  • Handful fresh coriander, chopped, plus extra leaves to garnish
  • Grated zest ½ lime, plus 2 lime wedges to serve and 1 to squeeze
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced (squeeze over lime juice to prevent browning)

Method

  1. Whizz all the chutney ingredients with 2 tbsp water in a food processor until smooth, then transfer to a bowl.
  2. Clean the processor, then whizz half the sweetcorn to a coarse paste. Put in a large bowl, then add the rest of the sweetcorn with the flour, chilli powder, cumin, the beaten egg, chopped coriander, lime zest and a good pinch of salt. Mix to a batter.
  3. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan, then spoon in the batter to form 4 circles, well spaced. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side on a low-medium heat until golden. Set aside and keep warm. Fry the whole eggs in the same pan with a little oil.
  4. Divide the fritters between 2 plates, then serve with a dollop of chutney, half the sliced avocado, 1 fried egg and a few coriander leaves.
