Suma Sweetcorn Fritters Recipe

Submitted by on June 4, 2010 – 11:31 amOne Comment

I’ve been cooking these fritters for Suma workers for years but not on a regular basis as making over 200 of them at a time is a labour of love!  – Rowena, Suma Canteen Coordinator


1 tin Suma Organic Sweetcorn (LJ146)
1 free range egg (omit for vegans)
¼ teaspoon Suma Organic Ground Cumin (HE376)
1 tablespoon very finely chopped onion
50g gram flour
25g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3 tablespoons milk (can use soya for vegans)
Pinch salt (optional)
Suma Organic Sunflower Oil (GT080) for frying



Blitz the drained sweetcorn with a hand blender, don’t overdo it as you just want to break down the kernels of corn not macerate them. 

Then using a fork beat in the egg then add the cumin and onion.  Beat in the flours, baking powder and bicarb.  Finally thoroughly mix in the milk/soya milk  and allow the batter to stand for a few minutes.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add dollops of the batter mix, allow to cook for 3 or 4 minutes and then turn over and fry the other side.

Tasty with sweet chilli sauce. If I do this as a starter for a Thai meal I usually add a teaspoon of finely grated ginger and some chopped chilli. Enjoy!
