Shocking Corn Fritters- Bakwan Jagung Pedas
I always miss this particular starch + starch snack: Corn fritters aka bakwan jagung. Popular as teatime snack, or you can eat it as a side dish accompanying...ofcourse...rice. Plenty of sweet and crunchy corn kernels in each bite...and the SHOCK factor comes when you bite on pieces of hot chilli (HA-HA-HA !). Prepare a big glass of sweet iced tea /water (not soda, as it highlights heat) & a box of tissue.
This is not a suitable side dish for Valentine's day dinner if you can't stand the heat. If you can, you might impress your date, but then again...he/she might end up dumping you before it all even began. Hmm...or you can simply omit the chilli.
- 1 can of whole kernel corn
- 9 tbsp of plain flour
- 2 tbsp of corn starch
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- finely chopped spring onion, corriander, garlic, red chilli
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix well, scoop 1 tbsp of concoction into hot oil, fry until golden brown.
If you did put the chilli, dig in, with care.
