THAI FRIED CORN FRITTERS

Thai Fried Corn Fritters aka Khao-pode Tod Song-krueng in Thai.  Really no idea how to pronounce it in Thai but does not matter.  Important is, these are tasty and delicious to eat.
Frankly speaking, it is tasty good, fragrant, sweet savoury and crunchy.  You would not notice that there is meat in it.
Moreover, it is easy to prepare.  The original recipe uses deep-fry method but  I pan fry as I didn't want to waste too much oil for deep frying.
The coriander roots and garlic can be pounded instead of finely chopped.
Recipe adapted from Healthy and Easy Thai Cooking [my this month's selected cookbook for Cookbook Countdown Event #9]
Ingredients
[makes 15 fritters]
150 gm fresh corn kernels - coarsely chopped
100 gm minced meat
1 egg
1 stalk coriander leaves - chopped
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 - 1 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 - 1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp all purpose flour
Oil for frying 
Chilli or tomato sauce
  1. Combine corn kernels, minced meat, eggs, coriander and garlic in a mixing bowl.  Add in the seasoning ingredients.  Mix well before adding the flour.  Mix into a paste.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick wok/pan with enough oil to pan fry the fritters.  Scoop 1 tablespoon  each of the paste into pan and fry fritters until golden brown on both sides over medium hot oil.
  3. Dish up onto serving platter.  Serve with sauces of your choice.

Kimmy, I love fritters! Wah, this one is really good, Got minced meat some more. Very appetizing. Will try this on a weekend when I am free :)

Hi Phong Hong, I don't mind just having this on weekends too. You can actually mix the batter earlier and leave it in the fridge until required. You can replace the minced meat with prawns or chicken if you like. Most important in the corn kernels.

Hi Margaret, I find these fritters as something good for snack cos' of the corn kernels in it. Great on its own. The corn kernels are crunchy and sweet.
