  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup corn kernels fresh or canned
  • 1 medium bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1/2 tsp. salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper or to taste
  • olive oil for frying about 3-4 tablespoons


  • Prepare the batter by whisking together the flour, baking powder, egg, and water in a medium bowl. When the batter is smooth, add the olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  • To the batter, add the corn, bell pepper, parsley, and chives. Mix it well and set aside.
  • Heat up a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour about 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil onto it. Once the oil is hot, add one heaping tablespoon at a time of the corn mixture, and flatten out the tops slightly to make the fritters even. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. If they brown too quickly, reduce the heat.




If you’d like to save some calories and make these fritters healthier, I suggest baking them instead of frying. To do that, you can:
a) Lightly spray a non-stick muffin tin with oil, and divide the corn mixture between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350°F.
b) Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet and add a heaping tablespoon of the corn mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350°F. Baking these corn fritters on parchment paper means we don’t need oil to keep them from sticking.
