Sometimes I feel like I spend my days searching for things to get my toddler to eat. I think I am running out of options here, woo. One day its his favorite and the next day do not dare get it near him or else!
About a month back I was at Whole Foods shopping and picked up some "Corn and Cilantro Fritters" for myself. I came home and prepared them and can you believe my little stinker took them and ate them from me? Well, was I not surprised. That was the last thing I would think he would gobble up but hey if he likes it well Momma likes it for him. And its a pretty healthy dish too.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups corn kernels
4 tablespoons fresh cilantro
Oil, for frying
1. In a medium sized bowl; mix together flour, salt, pepper and baking powder. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add the 2 eggs. Mix together gently with a fork until blended. Place mixture in fridge for about 10 minutes.
2. Pour oil in a skillet until it is about 3/4 to 1inch high. Heat over medium heat, careful to not get oil to hot, fritters will brown to fast.
3. Mix together corn and cilantro. Remove the batter from the fridge and combine batter with corn. Drop a spoonful of corn mixture into the hot oil. Fry on one side for 2 minutes or until deep brown in color. Flip and fry for 2 more minutes, or until golden. Drain fritters on paper towel.
Serve with sour cream
Yum, now I see you all are noticing that I sure love making fritters. Go ahead and search fritters and see what all pops up. Next, I am going to figure out away to combine this recipe and my Zucchini Fritters, delicious.
