  1. Tip the flour, baking powder and ½ tsp salt into a bowl or jug. Whisk in the eggs and milk to form a thick smooth batter. Stir the curry paste into the batter and mix until combined. Tip the sweetcorn, spring onions, coriander and prawns into another larger bowl.
  2. Pour the batter onto the sweetcorn, mix and fold through to combine. Heat a few tbsp of oil in a large, non-stick pan until hot. Fry large spoonfuls of the batter at a time (do this is batches), for about 2 mins each side, or until golden and cooked through. You will make about 8-10. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the rest. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.

Really quick and easy to make. We loved these. First time at making fritters. Definitely recommend trying these.

Lovely! Made these to use up a single corn cob - I cut the kernels off and used them as they were, without any pre-cooking. I didn't have any Thai curry paste, but I added a chopped fresh red chilli instead. Served with salad.

Made these for my family - inc. 2 children aged 8 and 15. Put in double the amount of prawns and cut down on the Thai curry paste - 3 tsps (I used Bart's which is very strong). If I hadn't done this, then we wouldnt have been able to taste the prawns, sweetcorn (I used fresh because its in season) or Spring onion. As it was, they went down a dream. Liked by all and my partner even said that he could eat these as a snack at work.

Wow so good. I made them with salmon too and they were devoured just as fast.
