Sweetcorn fritters, wedges & peas, 30p a serving, Meal Plan 1


Simple little fritters, very quick and easy, and at 30p a serving, a very cheap meal

Sweetcorn fritters

175g sweetcorn
50g self raising flour
50ml vegetable oil

400g potatoes
160g peas

First of all make some oven wedges. Scrub the potatoes and cut them into wedges.  Toss them with some oil, salt and pepper. Put them in a medium oven and roast for about half an hour. You could microwave them until semi cooked to cut this time down, and give them a good shake to rough up the edges a bit to get crispier wedges

Put the sweetcorn and flour in a bowl and add enough water to make a thick batter. Heat the oil in a frying pan and drop spoonfuls of corny batter into the pan. Cook until set and golden on one side, flip over and cook the other side.

Cook the peas
Serve with the oven wedges and peas

Makes 2 portions


You could put the peas in the batter and serve the sweetcorn as the side vegetable, makes a nice change, perhaps adding some fine chopped mint

Add some spices to the batter for a deliciously different fritter, any that you have and like

Serve with some chutney, or ketchup
