Carrot and Corn Fritters

This has been a hectic month. I have started a new business, Property Supervision.
After 15 years of working for the same company - I am venturing out on my own, to make my own path in the business world.

As you can imagine, food blogging has had to take a step aside, while I made all the plans and preparation for my big life change. I have however been cooking some really good meals lately, but there just hasn't been time to photograph, style, write and post about them.

I do have one jewel I have been desperate to share with you and I know you'll love the budget friendly and simplicity of this dish. For those with small children, I can vouch it is a big hit with them too.

Carrot and Corn Fritters

2 Cups Cooked and Mashed Carrots
1/2 Cup of defrosted Frozen Sweetcorn
2 sliced bread, dampened and crumbled
2 Tablespoons of Flour
2 large Egg
1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Oil for frying

Mix all the ingredients together.
Allow to cool in the fridge for 1 hour.
Heat oil to medium high heat.
Make patties from the carrot mixture and fry until golden brown on each side.
Don't be tempted to "play" with them too much while frying, they will fall apart.
Fry on one side, then flip over and fry the other side.
I served mine with a cucumber and yogurt raita.

Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I was at my wits end this week as to what to put in the kids lunchboxes (when homemade muffins are now classified as unhealthy). I will definitely make this soon :)

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.
C.S. Lewis
