Feta contrasts so nicely with the sweetcorn, and I’ve then added smoked paprika and spring onions for a depth of flavour, and lime juice for somewhat acidic hit. The lime juice received’t make them candy in any respect, it merely contributes to the general steadiness. And provides them somewhat Mexican vibe.

Sure frozen corn will work properly for this recipe. Defrost it first, then observe the steps outlined within the recipe.

Can I Use Gluten Free Plain Flour As an alternative of Corn Flour?

I’ve not tried it however I can’t see why it wouldn’t work. The fritters might be barely much less crisp, because the corn flour actually helps to up the crispy ante on this recipe.
