Corn Fritters – Thai style!


These Thai style corn fritters are the most similar to my precious grandmother’s (or my Oma) corn fritters I grew up eating from time to time.  I grew up in Indonesia eating lots of yummy Indonesian dishes.  Unfortunately, there is NOT one Indonesian restaurant in the Boston area, so I do miss Indonesian home cooking.  A dear friend of mine gave me an Asian Recipe book for my birthday a few years ago.  Now that I’m back into cooking and trying out new recipes, I found a Corn Fritters recipe that I decided to try.  The only difference is that Indonesian style do not use the Thai sweet chili sauce sauce on the side.  These fritters are so delicious that I found myself having a hard time saving my appetite for dinner!

To make this, you need:Image

  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 can corn – drained
  • Bunch of cilantro
  • 1 Serrano chile – seeded and cut small
  • 3/4 cup Flour
  • 2 eggs – beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • 1 garlic clove – cut small
  • 1 scallion – chopped finely
  • Oil for light frying

Next, mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Measure out fritter using a spoon and carefully transfer to the hot oil.  I did 3 fritters at a time.  Make sure they are not crowded and you want each fritter to have room in the pan.


Lightly fry for 2 minutes on each side. Once done, transfer to a paper towel to drain the oil.


Serve immediately.  Hope you love these fritters as much as I do!
