Corn Fritters

A couple of months back, I started a new visual blog called Malaysian Food Gallery (MFG). The initial idea of launching this blog was to attempt to highlight the diversity of the Malaysian cuisine, which includes my favorite recipes all in one location on the internet cloud. The initial idea expanded over time. I thought it would be a good idea to also showcase and share other delightful Asian recipes from other talented bloggers globally. Therefore, the final objective of this blog is to attempt to consolidate all the great Malaysian and Asian recipes from the many sources on the web for your easy access and reference. Recipes will be accompanied by high resolution photos that will surely please your visual palate! Contrary to it's name, the blog carries a self explanatory tagline about it's mission, "A Journey Beyond Delicious Asian Gastronomic Delights!". Do drop by MFG and provide your much needed support for the new blog and my little initiative.

With that brief introduction, I will like to start with this delicious Indonesian snack recipe from Jun of Indochine Kitchen. I made these Corn Fritters as an after-school snack and my kids love it! The recipe might look a tad long; but, rest assured it’s quite easy once you gather all the ingredients. It cooks really quick too. The only adjustment you might need to consider is the degree of heat/spiciness that you can handle. So, do adjust the quantity of chilies need to suit your taste buds accordingly. Enjoy!

Corn Fritters


2 Shallots, peeled

2 Cloves Garlic, peeled

2 Candlenuts or Blanched Almonds

½ Tbsp Whole White Peppercorns

½ tsp Sea Salt

½ tsp Sugar

4 Corn, about 1.2 kg (net weight after grated and peeled is 500 g)

4 Red chilies, finely sliced (I used 2 Red Chilies)

4 Thai Bird's Eye Chilies, finely sliced (I used 2)

10 Kaffir Lime Leaves, finely sliced

1 Scallion, or Spring Onion, chopped

1 Stalk Chinese Celery, chopped

¼ Cup All-Purpose Flour

½ Tbsp Tapioca Starch

1 Egg

½ Cup Cooking oil, for pan-frying


Grind shallot, garlic, candlenuts, pepper, salt and sugar into fine paste.

Grate 3 cobs of corn using coarse grater. Peel the kernels off the remaining cob. Put everything in a large bowl.

Combine the rest of the ingredients into the corn. Mix well with a spoon.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil and fry for three minutes, till golden brown, both sides.

Serve warm with sweet chili sauce.


  1. These sound delicious can't wait to try them. Do you think it would work with frozen corn? The fresh stuff is a few months off yet here...

  2. Your corn fritter looks so light and fresh...sound perfect for summer snacking :)

  3. Love your recipes collection over at Malaysian Food Gallery. Thanks for sharing and Have a good day.


  4. @foodblogandthedog: I don't see any reasons why it shouldn't work. Just remember to chop or grind up some of the corn. You will need the moisture from the corn to incorporate the flours.

  5. I love the idea of MFG. Thanks for your initiative.

  6. You are so wicked to post something so wickedly wonderful! Crunchy too!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
