Ingredients

  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese - grated 40 grams
  • ¾ cup tasty cheese - grated 70 grams
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 zucchini approximately 130 grams
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 420 gram tin of corn kernels drained
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • ½ cup water 75 grams
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • Extra virgin olive oil for frying.

Instructions

  • Grate the zucchini into a large bowl.
  • Crush the garlic and add it along with the onion flakes and drained corn kernels to the bowl with the grated zucchini.
  • Then add the grated cheeses and flour. Gently stir to combine.
  • Beat the egg in a small bowl lightly with a fork and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the egg and the water to the bowl with the zucchini mixture and stir well to combine. If your batter is too dry, add an extra tablespoon of water at a time until the mixture comes together.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a ¼ measuring cup to scoop up the batter and place the fritter mixture into your pan. Use a spoon to gently spread the mixture into a circle between ½cm - 1cm thick. You should be able to fit approximately five fritters (or even more depending on the size of your pan) into your frying pan.
  • Cook the Fritters for 3 minutes on each side or until they are crisp and golden brown before transferring to a plate and covering them with foil so they stay warm while you cook the next batch. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Place the garlic clove, mozzarella cheese and tasty cheese into your Thermomix bowl. Mix for 8 seconds, speed 9 to grate.
  • Transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Without washing the bowl, add the zucchini pieces (no bigger than 4cm) and mix for 6 seconds, speed 6 to grate.
  • Add the self raising flour, egg, water, salt and pepper, onion flakes, grated cheese and garlic mix plus the drained corn kernels. Mix for 10 seconds, speed 4 on REVERSE.
  • Scrape down the sides of your Thermomix bowl. Your mixture should be starting to come together, if it’s too dry, add an extra tablespoon of water.
  • Mix for 5 seconds, speed 4 on REVERSE.
  • Add a little extra virgin olive oil to your frying pan and heat over a medium heat.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a ¼ measuring cup to scoop up the batter and place the fritter mixture into your pan. Use a spoon to gently spread the mixture into a circle between ½cm - 1cm thick. You should be able to fit approximately five fritters (or even more depending on the size of your pan) into your frying pan.
  • Cook the Fritters for 3 minutes on each side or until they are crisp and golden brown before transferring to a plate and covering them with foil so they stay warm while you cook the next batch. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.

Notes

If your mixture is too dry (this can happen depending on the water content of your zucchini) simply add a tablespoon of water to your mixture at a time until the batter forms.
You can use frozen corn kernels for this recipe in place of the tinned corn kernels, you will need 1 and ½ cups.
If you don't have onion flakes, you can use a small finely chopped brown onion in their place.
