You may already be wondering what you need to have in your kitchen in order to start preparing your fritters. Chances are, you already have everything you need! The main ingredient is corn, obviously.

The good news is that this recipe works with both fresh and frozen corn. So no worries here, you can enjoy this delicious fritters any time and day of the year. Just remember: if you decide to use frozen or canned corn, make sure to drain all the excess liquid. You will want your corn to be dry when you are mixing it with the other ingredients.

Extra toppings can be added for serving, such as scallions and some garlic if you prefer. Don’t forget the oil for frying – and this is all you will need!
