These vegan corn fritters are the perfect lunch! Typically, fritters are a batter deep-fried with bread crumbs, but this recipe gives you all the flavors without the deep-frying! The center of each fritter has an onion ring that is not only delicious, but it also keeps the vegan fritters together while they cook. Sweetcorn, coriander, and onion are mixed together for the batter and chili flakes give these vegan corn fritters a little kick. Dairy-free yogurt sauce balances it all out for the perfect vegan fritter!

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 cup or a small handful of fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup corn flour

  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • A pinch of salt

For the Yogurt Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup of plain soy yogurt

To Make the Fritters:

  1. Slice 2 white onions into rings and place aside.

  3. In a large flat pan, on low/medium, heat up 2 tablespoons of light olive oil.
  4. Place the onion rings into the pan and add in some of the sweetcorn mixture, making sure to keep in the onion rings to prevent the batter from spilling out.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes, or until golden brown, making sure to turn them over regularly for an even cook.
  6. Serve warm with a drizzle of coriander yogurt.

To Make the Yogurt Sauce:

  1. Place the soy yogurt, lime juice, coriander, and black pepper into a bowl and mix until combined.
