How to make vegan sweetcorn fritters

Place the cornflakes into a blender and grind to a powder.

Place the frozen sweetcorn into a bowl and cover with boiling water.

Place the frozen spinach into a separate bowl from the sweetcorn and pour boiling water over.

Leave to defrost while you carry on with the sweetcorn fritter recipe.

Very lightly fry the onion and red pepper until they soften on a low to medium heat.

Add the garlic stir and cook for a few more minutes, add the curry powder stir well cook for two minutes then turn off the heat.

Drain the sweetcorn into a sieve, place the sweetcorn into a clean towel and gently squeeze to remove excess water.

Repeat the process with the spinach, be sure that the spinach does not contain excess water or else the fritters will fall apart when cooking.

Place the onions and peppers, sweetcorn and spinach into a mixing bowl.
Add a little salt to season mix.

Add the silken tofu, mix well.

The tofu should be in tiny lumps not smooth.

Add two teaspoons of the ground cornflakes, mix well.

Add the two tablespoons of yogurt and two more teaspoons of the ground cornflakes, add more salt to season if needed and mix well.

Sprinkle ground cornflakes over a tray.

Place a cooking ring (with short sides) onto the tray and fill with the sweetcorn fritter mixture using a spoon, make sure the top is flat.

Sprinkle the top of the fritters with ground cornflakes.

Drizzle some oil into a large frying pan, carefully place each sweetcorn fritter into the pan using a flat spatula.

Leave a lot of space between each fritter in the pan or else when it comes to turning the fritters over there may not be enough room.

Fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown on the edges and heated through.

Two spatulas can be used to help turn over the fritters, you can slide the fritter off one spatula as the other helps pick it up.

Serve Chef Jeenas sweetcorn fritters with mashed potato or with bread, mayonnaise and other sauces.
