Tender fritters are great. I found a fantastic recipe for the all time corn fritter. No more cream corn. This recipe is the best.  This basic batter mix for any type of fritters you want to make from your normal corn to courgette to mussel fritters.  Great for brunch, lunch or in a smaller version you can serve it as a finger food at a party. I took this recipe and ingredients camping and serve this up for a great lunch. 

Basic batter mix
1 1/2 cup of self raising flour
3 eggs
1 tsp salt
Freshley ground pepper
3/4 cup of soda water.

For corn and Feta add to batter
2 cups corn kernels, 2 tbsp chopped mint, 1/2 cup crumble feta.

For Chilli Mussels add to batter
2 cups chopped cooked mussels, 1/4cup chopped coriander and 2-3 tbsp thai sweet chilli sauce.

For courgette and Pesto add to batter
 4 grated courgettes, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 2tbsp pesto.

Mix all ingredients until smooth. Stir in your choosen flavour ingredients.  Stand for 10 minutes.  Cook spoonfuls in 1/2 cm hot oil in a pan over a medium heat until golden brown on each side .
With corn fritters I serve them with slices of avocado and strips of crispy bacon and a bit of either plum sauce or chiil sweet sauce.
