Prep time 10 mins Cooking time 10 mins Serves 4
For the fritters:
180g plain or wholemeal flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
250ml semi-skimmed milk
2 spring onions, sliced
350g sweetcorn (fresh, tinned and drained, or frozen and defrosted all work great)
1 large sweet potato, grated
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp oil
½ red chilli, de-seeded and sliced (optional)
1 handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped (optional)
For the yoghurt dip
250g low-fat plain Greek-style yoghurt
handful of fresh mint, finely chopped (or 1 tsp dried mint)
black pepper, to taste
How to make it!
1 Mix the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Add the eggs and milk, and whisk until the mixture becomes a smooth batter. Then stir in the corn, sweet potato, spring onions, curry powder, and chilli and coriander if using.
Tip: This recipe works well with loads of different types of veg, so mix it up! Try swapping the sweet potato for grated carrot, courgette, squash or beetroot, and switch out the corn for peas, chopped pepper or drained tinned chickpeas.
2 Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add a few tablespoons of batter to the pan, making sure each dollop has enough space around it and does not overlap with the others. Fry the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
3 Once the fritters are ready, remove from the pan onto a plate lined with kitchen paper. Work in batches until all the batter is cooked.
4 Make the dip by mixing the yoghurt, mint and pepper together in a bowl. Serve alongside the fritters and get dipping!
