- 2 Jalapeno chilli , optional
- 1 tsp Smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp Sumac

- 1/2 Avocado
- 1 Lime
- Chilli jam
- 1 bunch Coriander
- 1 L Grapeseed oil , or other frying oil
- 1 tsp Ghee, for frying eggs, can use oil
In a bowl, add kernels from 3 cobs corn, 1/2 a finely diced red onion, 1 finely diced jalapeno (remove seeds for less heat), the zest of 1 lime, 1 heaped tsp of smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp of sumac, 1 tsp of baking powder, a small handful of finely chopped coriander, 3 eggs, 150g of wholemeal flour, pinch of salt & pepper and 100ml milk. Mix to a batter consistency.
Next make the salsa by finely dicing 1/4 of a pineapple, 1 jalapeno, a small handful of cherry tomatoes,1/2 an avo, 1/4 of a red onion and a handful of coriander. Combine in a bowl with the juice of 1 lime and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Heat a heavy based saucepan on the stove with 1L of grapeseed oil to 180C. Add 1 tablespoons portions of the fritter mixture to the pot, without overcrowding it (we did ours 8 at a time).
Cook for 5mins or until golden.
– Cut one open to check they are cook through and adjust cooking time if needed. Season with salt as they cool.
Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Sit cooked fritters on paper towel or a wire rack to keep them crispy and let oil drain away once they are cooked.
On a high heat in a frying pan, cook 1 fried egg per person using ghee, butter or oil, until cooked.
Construct by popping 3 fritters on a the plate followed by a few tablespoons of the salsa, a fried egg, some chilli jam and chopped coriander.
