Baked Thai Corn Fritters

This is a lower fat version of this recipe (there is a better pic here). They are not as crispy as the original, and are a little more like a corn cake, or corn bread, but they are tasty nonetheless. Serve with Thai dipping sauce as a great appetizer. The boys loved them and gobbled them right down. Next time I will have to make a double batch (and remember to have cilantro on hand so I can do the recipe right).

INGREDIENTS
Makes 8

- 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
- red curry paste, to taste
- 1/2 cup chickpea flour
- 1 Ener-G egg
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
- salt to taste

METHOD
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
1. Put thawed corn in a bowl. Mix in curry paste. Add in flour, Ener-G egg, garlic, cilantro, oil, and cilantro sauce and mix well. Season to taste.
2. Dip a 1/4 cup measure in water, then scoop out a scant 1/4 cup of batter onto the prepared baking sheet.
3. Bake for 12-15 mins, until golden brown on top.

These look delicious--and we have all the ingredients on hand, so just might make it in the next couple of days. Mmm...that fire-roasted corn from Trader Joe's will be perfect in these. Thanks for the recipe!

I love corn fritters. We celebrate New Year's Day at my mom's house, and she has been making them on that day, and on that day only, for years (not vegan though!). These look extremely yummy.

These look amazing! Am I able to substitute any other kind of flour in place of the chickpea flour - would just be looking to use something I already have on hand as opposed to buying chickpea flour (any kind of wheat flour)? Thanks!

Corn fritters are so awesome. I love how you can see the little kernels poking out!

Made these tonight--definitely doubling the recipe next time! They were excellent.

These egg replacements such Ener-g call for a mix of the powder with a certain amount of water. When used in recipes such as this, do you just use the powder or the mixture of powder and water?

I'm asking this because I made these fritters last night and they were delicious. However, I had to cook them for a lot longer than you recommend to get them to set. I'm wonder if it's because I made up the egg replacer with water as per the pack directions?

Thank you,
Ron ...

Ron,
I made up the actual egg--2 tsp powder to 3 tbsp egg, if memory serves. I will have to make these again to make sure everything is right.
