Sweet Potato and Corn Fritters

Vegetable fritters are a favorite of  mine. Obviously, as I've already posted four (and maybe five by the time I post this): Faith's is my favorite (because I make it all the time) and then Ottolenghi's leek fritters, plus Donna Hay's (the closest to this recipe) ...and lastly, the one I've had an amazing number of hits on: Peter's Tomato Fritters.
What I like about Alicia's recipe is you can use up some things in your veggie bin. Well, that's the fun with most fritters, using up your veggie bits and pieces. 

I served these fritters with some sour cream but Alicia served them with a garlicky blue cheese dip of some sort. You can make them in round balls too. Anything goes.

Alicia Foodycat's Sweet Potato and Corn Fritters
From Alicia at Foodycat

3 sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
4 cobs of corn, kernels sliced off
1 onion, finely sliced
2 leeks, finely sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
small bunch of coriander, chopped
3 large eggs
2 cups self-raising flour, approx
salt, pepper and smoked paprika

Mix all the veg in a large bowl with the eggs and season with salt, pepper and a little smoked paprika, then add flour until it forms a pretty thick batter. (I didn't use nearly as much as the ingredient list indicates. Eye it as you're adding.
Heat 2" of oil in a deep saucepan, then press handfuls of the batter into balls and carefully drop into the oil. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, in batches, draining well on kitchen paper.

  5. sweet potatoes and corn are two of my favorite sides, and this is a fabulous way to combine them! love me some fritters. :)

  7. Those do look good Barbara. I have a bunch of corn in the freezer that came off extra ears this summer. Fritters are such a lovely snack.

  8. Fritters are a GREAT way to "clean out the fridge" Barbara but I must say, these would be fabulous at any dinner party and I doubt there would be any leftover!

    Thanks for sharing, Barbara...
