Corn & Spinach Fritters

Today is my Dad's birthday, so its a true celebratory day for our family. I'm looking forward to going out for a meal later today with the folks and my sister & her fiancee and of course hubby! Roll on the good times, but until then.........................

Happy Birthday Dad

But did you also know that it is "Corn Fritters Day" & "Fresh Spinach Day" so what other recipe could I share with you all but Sweetcorn & Spinach fritters?


100g Plain flour
1 Tsp Baking powder
20g Polenta
150ml Water
200g Fresh sweetcorn kernels
40g Spinash, shredded
3 Tbsp Olive oil


Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.

Add the polenta and mix to combine.

Slowly add the water stirring continuously until you have a thick paste.

Add the fresh corn kernels and shredded spinach and give everything a really good mix, so the batter coats the vegetables.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and once hot add a heaped tablespoon of the batter, fry for 3 minutes then turn over and fry for 2 minutes or until both sides are golden brown. You won't be able to cook all the fritters in one go so you'll need to do them in batches.

Once fried, remove the fritters with a slotted spoon and place on kitchen towel to soak up the excess oil. keep warm in a low oven until you have cooked all the fritters.

Serve with a dip of your choice, mango & chilli was the dip of my choice!
