Kumara and Corn Fritters
Makes 8 Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 410 g can Wattie's Cream Style Corn
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh herbs (thyme or chives are great here)
  • ½ cup self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup roughly mashed cooked cold kumara
  • 1 egg, separated
  • butter or oil for pan frying


1. In a bowl mix together the Wattie's Cream Style Corn, ginger, herbs, self raising flour, milk, mashed kumara and egg yolk.

2. In a clean bowl beat the egg white until stiff. Fold the egg white and kumara into the mixture.

3. Heat a little butter or oil in a non-stick frying pan (the butter helps to crispen the outside) and cook large spoonfuls over a low to moderate heat for about 3 minutes each side.

Serve with crispy grilled rashers of bacon, grilled tomatoes and a drizzle of golden syrup.
