Corn and avocado fritters with avocado, yoghurt, coriander & lime sauce

Corn fritters have long been a breakfast favourite. In fact they are a breakfast favourite that I love so much they often make their way to the dinner table in our house. However there is one thing I’m fussy about is that the corn needs to be cooked first. I find cooking the corn kernels before adding them to the fritters makes the kernels tender and releases their sweetness.

The easiest, and quickest way to cook the corn to be in the microwave, however I know some of you don’t have or don’t like microwaves. If you don’t have a microwave you can quickly sautee the corn in a little butter in a frying pan before making the fritters. Just be sure to let the kernels cool before adding them to the fritter batter.

The avocado, yoghurt, coriander and lime sauce is optional but adds a nice zing to the dish. Any left over sauce is also great as a dipping sauce for crudités, on burgers or as a salad dressing.

Serves: 2 - 3
  • ½ an avocado
  • ¼ cup unsweetened yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp coriander, roughly chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt, to taste
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt, more or less to taste
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk or milk
  • 1 cob of corn, husked and kernels removed, and optionally cooked
  • ½ an avocado, finely diced
  • ¼ cup coriander (cilantro), roughly chopped
  • olive oil for frying
  • 6 slices of haloumi, optional, to serve
  1. Begin by making the sauce. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process to combine. Check the seasoning and add more salt or lime as necessary. Refrigerate while you make the fritters.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and spices in a bowl and stir to combine. Combine the buttermilk and egg and whisk to combine before pouring into the dry mixture. Mix well, add the corn kernels and avocado and mix to combine.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat and add olive oil to the pan. Add spoonfuls of the batter to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes, or until golden. Place on paper towel while you cook the remaining fritters. Keep the fritters warm. Add the haloumi slice and cook for 1 minute on each side, or until golden.
  4. Divide the fritters between the serving plates and top with haloumi and top with the avocado, yoghurt and lime sauce and serve.

Great recipe! I’m not a fan of cilantro so I substituted fresh pressed garlic & cayenne to make a more traditional guacamole. I could also not find haloumi at my grocery so I substituted chèvre in it’s place. To make it a little healthier I used almond milk instead of buttermilk and it turned out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I am a big fan of fritters for breaky too, they remind of breakfasts at home as a teenager with mum. She makes THE best corn fritters.

Ooh good to know! I love Target!

Not only do the fritters look super tasty, but those plates are GORGEOUS!

the first time I ever had corn fritters was at Bill’s in Sydney and now I love to make them at home, so so delicious! You can’t go wrong with avocado on top either :-)

I just realised I have two cobs of corn sitting in the crisper that seriously need to be used…. fritters it is!

I LOVE corn fritters and agree, they definitely make their way onto the dinner table at our house too. Love this avo sauce!

I had my first corn fritter this year and I loved it. I love to saute fresh corn. In the US south it’s called ‘fried corn’ but it’s the same thing. :) Love these!
