Corn fritters are a perfect snack that I made in my live cooking session – Midnight Breakfast Talkies. This week’s guest in the session was Rabia from @drcardamom and she made delicious challa bread french toast served it with candied pecan.

Fritters are a healthy variation of ur desi Pakoras. I love making fritters as they are crispy on the outside and extremely flavorful and soft from inside. Healthy because they are pan fried and you can control the amount of oil needed to cook them unlike pakoras which are deep fried.

You can make fritters with almost anything i.e., spinach, zucchini, apple, peaches. Just play around with your imagination. They are very quick and easy to make. These corn fritters were gone even before I was done frying them all. They can be baked as well. A must try!!
