Ricotta and Corn Fritters
« on: February 27, 2010, 05:41:42 am »
Name of Recipe: Ricotta and Corn Fritters
Yield approx 50 small fritters
Ingredients:
3 spring onions
200g ricotta
2 eggs
125g milk
75g wholemeal flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
420g tinned corn, drained (thermomix basket works beautifully)

Preparation:
Chop spring onions, speed 7, 2 secs.  Scrape down.
Add ricotta, eggs and milk.  Beat together until smooth, speed 4, 10 seconds.
Add flour, baking powder and corn.  Mix, reverse speed 3, 10 seconds.
Grease a frying pan with oil.  Add heaped tablespoons of the corn mixture to the pan, using a spatula to flatten to about 1.5 cm thick.
Cook for 3-4 minutes each side, remove from pan.  (Note - they cook quicker with a lid on.
Serve with home-made tomato sauce for dipping.

Tips/Hints:
My tin of corn was 300g, so I added frozen peas to make up the difference.  Very nice.  Could also add diced capsicum, bacon.
The plan is to send these to pre-prep for lunch.

OK to freeze.

members' comments

earth mumma - made these for my kids lunch boxes.  They absolutely loved them AND they asked to have them again.

foodgroupie - just made these for my 16 month old, I just ate 3 Yummo, she is going to love these when she gets home from day care!

Cuddle Cook - Just made these for my 14 month old and she loved them. Used the kernels from 2 cobs of corn cooked or 5 mins in the microwave. Turned half the batch into some more adult version with extra spring onion, green chilli and cumin - yummo. They'd make a great canape with some guacamole on top. Thanks for the recipe.

Have to admit that my fussy 4.5 DD took one look at the corn and peas and wouldn't eat  :'(.  So next time I'll just blend them in  ;)!  There's more than one way to skin a cat!

LOL - thanks for the recipe.  You could use a tin of creamed corn ? instead.  That'll fool them  ;)  Then you'll be sure that there are no offensive yellow bits.

Hi Cathy79.  Just thought I'd let you know that I made these for my kids lunch boxes.  They absolutely loved them  ;D ;D ;D.  AND they asked to have them again.  Thanks for the ideas - I hate thinking up new things for the kids to take  :( :(- they don't like sandwiches much, but don't like dips much either, so it can be tricky finding something they all like. Thanks again.
