Make brunch for your family with these delicious corn fritters. With a light, crunchy crust and fluffy inside, these corn fritters are quick to make and sure to find favour with both the adults and the kids. Thai fish sauce and sweet chilli sauce give these tasty corn fritters a double dose of Asian flavour. Serve them while still warm for brunch or as a snack. You can buy sweet chilli sauce in Asian grocery stores or Amazon or make this typical Thai condiment at home.

Thai Corn Fritters

inspired by this recipe
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 100 g White spelt flour (or plain flour)
  • 2 Garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp Coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 285 g Canned corn kernels, drained
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper, freshly milled
  • 2 Spring onions, finely chopped
  • Lard, to fry
  • Sweet chilli sauce, to serve
  • Baby spinach and cherry radishes, to serve, optional
  1. Place the eggs, spelt flour, garlic, coconut sugar, fish sauce, half the corn kernels, salt and pepper in a food processor. Process to a puree. Add the chopped spring onions and the remaining corn kernels and stir well to combine. Heat the lard in a non-stick frypan over medium-high heat.
  2. Working in batches, drop tablespoons of corn batter into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Keep warm while you make the remaining fritters.
  3. Arrange baby spinach and cherry radishes on plates if using and stack the fritters on salad, drizzle with sweet chilli sauce or serve at side as a dipping sauce.

Hi This looks like a delicious recipe. way back maybe 25 years ago or so I was trying out spelt flour when I figured out I couldn't have gluten I loved working with the spelt but still too much gluten for me. I may try this recipe with a different flour. thanks for sharing

Christine 14/9/21 03:58

Looking at the ingredients it is yum!

Tom 14/9/21 04:25

I'm so craving these, Angie! Such wonderful flavors!

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 14/9/21 10:17

OMG! You are making my mouth water and it is only 9am!

I use chilli sauce, soy sauce or garlic in almost everything I cook, as we are true lovers of tasty, flavoursome food.

Thanks for sharing, definitely one for my recipe collection :)

You bring some of the best recipes here. My daughter is a great fan of corn, anything and everything corny catches her fancy. So these fritters are on my list and with the flavours and ingredients it will make a lovely family dish too.

Lola Martínez 14/9/21 10:41

Conozco poco la comida asiática, pero es algo a lo que estoy poniendo remedio y he descubierto que me gusta. Igual me gustan tus buñuelos, deben ser exquisitos, tienen un aspecto de lo más atractivo sobre una ensalada.

DEZMOND 14/9/21 13:14

Why do you fry it in lard, deary?
I found a recipe yesterday for veggie fritters in which you dice and fry onion and some garlic and then pour 300ml of water and mix in one instant soup (mushroom for example) and then when it thickens you put 200g of oat flakes in it and any seasonings you like. When it cools down you ad an egg, flour if needed and form fritters, but you don't fry them but bake them in the oven on the baking paper. It is an unusual approach with that soup.

Bernadette 14/9/21 13:53

Angie, I particularly like fritters and there is just enough Jersey corn left to make this recipe. Can't wait.

foodtravelandwine 14/9/21 14:18

Chef Mimi 15/9/21 00:46

Wow! these look wonderful. the only time I made pancakes Asian-inspired were when I made kimchi pancakes. But what a great recipe, and to dip in that sauce - to die for!

I've never met a fritter I didn't love. :) Love the Thai flavors in this one. So different from the seasoning I use.

My dad always loved corn fritters. I'm not one for frying but I'll bet they tasted delicious.

tigerfish 17/9/21 23:53

Love savory homemade snacks like this anytime. These corn fritters actually look similar to the Thai-style fish cakes/fritters but the taste should be quite different (as Thai-style fish fritters has kaffir lime leaves that gives off that "signature" aroma)

Whats Cookin Italian Style Cuisine 19/9/21 12:44

These looks so good I had to make them fabulous recipe thank you!

Noob Cook 22/9/21 10:40

These savoury corn fritters are totally my kind of food. Love that it is served on a lush bed of salad leaves.

Choclette 22/9/21 12:10

Love corn fritters and your Thai twist sounds delicious. Just wish I'd got some corn so I could make some for lunch. Runs to shopping list.

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 25/9/21 02:51

These look absolutely amazing! I love corn fritters, but never thought to make them with Thai seasoning. I do tend to season mine up more than most people, because I like the spice. I’m going to try your recipe.
