I saw these in "family fun" magazine and had to try. We all LOVE corn and these looked like the best bite-sized side for any meal!
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper [optional]
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1 T [tablespoon] unsalted butter, melted
1-1/2 cups can or frozen corn, thawed if frozen [I think it could do with MORE corn, so try adding 2 cups]
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
Canola or vegetable oil
- In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, cumin, sugar, and cayenne.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter.
- Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until they are just blended. Fold in the corn and scallions.
- Pour oil in large nonstick skillet [until it come up 1/4 inch on the sides] and heat over medium-high heat until the oil is shimmering.
- For each crisp, drop a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter into the oil. Fry them in batches over medium-high heat until they are golden, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Transfer the crisps to a paper towel-lined sheet pan, sprinkling them immediately with a bit of salt. [this can be taken out--it was pretty salty with the sprinkled salt on top, in my opinion]
- Repeat with the remaining batter.
