Thrown Together

Getting new ideas for things to cook and bake can be a pain. Sometimes I find myself just thinking too hard. Last night I was about 20 minutes away from serving dinner but I had an unsettled feeling, I needed something else - what could I add? Bake beans ? Boring. A salad? Too cold. Fritters? YES YES YES!

These fritters were pure inspiration - made without any planning and just thrown together with ingredients I already had. No planning or reading, just inspiration by necessity.



Asian Corn Fritters

1 drained tin Corn
1 Cup Self raising Flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon Bi-Carb
15ml Black Sesame seeds
12 Finely chopped Spring Onions
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
2 Eggs
150ml Plain Yoghurt
Salt
Pepper
Enough Milk to slacken the batter
Oil for frying

Mix all the ingredients except the milk.
Add just enough milk to have the batter soft enough to slowly drop off a spoon.
Heat you pan with a little oil.
Drop spoonfuls into the pan and cook until golden brown and flip over and cook the other side.

These are good served with sweet chilli sauce or even on their own cold and in a lunch box.

This is my submission to the Monthly Mingle started by Meeta.
Hosted this month by Mansi.

Delicious! I'd use fresh corn off the cob for a bit of crunch, yum.

Christie - I would too, but this was very spur of the moment - pantry emergency! Thanks for the visit.

Passionate - They are so pretty, they make such a wonderful colour addition and taste!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
