Corn Fritters – Gluten Free

Quick and simple corn fritters…

Snacking on a gloomy evening makes me feel better, especially fried snacks. Lately, I am not that keen about fried snacks, so the other day made this pan fried corn fritters. I’ve not been into major cooking these days, though cooking helps me to relax, sometimes if I’m stuck with other thoughts I cannot focus much in cooking. So, after my defense which is on Tuesday, I’ll be back on track. On wednesday, our best friends from Chicago are visiting us to celebrate their lil girl’s 5th birthday. So, obviously I’m planning to make a fondant cake for her and Yes, lots of cooking as well. Looking forward to my defense and our friends visit.

Last weekend, I was watching Food network and I came across this simple recipe for making corn fritters. As it was very easy to make and I had a few corns in my freezer, I made it right away and enjoyed with a cup of coffee.
