Sweet Corn Fritters

Serves 4-6
1 cup of cooked corn kernels
1 small zucchini peeled and grated
50 grams plain flour
generous pinch salt
2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives
1 egg whisked
generous pinch whole celery seeds (optional)
30 ml of water
oil for frying
Add all of the ingredients to a bowl – adding the water last, a little at a time until the mixture is the consistency of a thick paste. You may not need to use it all. Mix the ingredients with a spoon to combine. Heat a pan with oil and add scoops of the mixture to the hot oil to fry. Turn each fritter once. Remove from the oil when golden brown on both sides and drain on paper towel. Serve with dipping sauce of choice and a salad, or serve as a side dish
Test if the oil is hot enough to commence cooking the fritters by placing the end of a wooden spoon into the oil. If tiny bubbles rise from around the end of the immersed handle the oil is hot enough. Take extra care when cooking with hot oil and ensure children are not in the immediate vicinity and that the oil is not left unattended for any length of time.
If you do not have fresh chives available substitute with any herbs – the recipe works well with sage and thyme also
