Basil Jalapeno Corn Fritters. Easy Gluten-free Vegan Corn Fritters with jalapeno, basil and black pepper. Serve with ketchup, vegan ranch or chutneys of choice. Soy-free Recipe. Pin this post.
It has been incredibly hot the past few days and I realized we have a few more weeks of Summer left. Yes! Bring on all that sweet corn to make some corn fritters.
These corn fritters are super easy and super quick. Toss, some corn, herbs, spices and rice flour. Add water and cook on a skillet. I added fresh basil, jalapeno and loads of black pepper to these. It helps make the summer heat bearable, because you would be hotter than the heat outside ;0. And the sweating helps cool things down ;).
I use rice flour and cornmeal in these fritters. Any flour will work. I prefer white rice flour as it tends to be more crunchy and less gummy than regular flour. The flavor also lets the corn shine through. There is more corn than batter, so some of the corn gets nicely toasted and smoky almost like a grilled corn fritter. Use herbs of choice and make these fritters. Serve with cilantro chutney, vegan ranch, ketchup or other dips.
