Sweet corn and capsicum fritters with avocado smash

Sweet corn and capsicum fritters with avocado smash

This is the perfect meal that could be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You could also add a poached egg for an added boost of protein.


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250g frozen sweet corn, thawed
  • 1 small red capsicum, diced
  • 125g chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Avocado smash

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • juice of 1/2 lime, plus lime wedges, to serve
  • 1/2 bunch mint, leaves picked
  • Tabasco, to taste


  • Spray a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil and set over a medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the sweet corn and capsicum; cook mixture for 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the vegetable mixture to a large bowl. Add the flour and spices; then gradually stir in the eggs and 1/2 cup of cold water until the mixture is combined.
  • Wipe the frying pan clean, then return to a medium heat and spray with oil. Scoop 2 heaped tablespoons of batter into the pan for each fritter and, working in batches, gently fry for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Continue to make 8 fritters in total.
  • Make avocado smash: Put the avocado, lime juice and most of the mint in a food processor. Season with black pepper and tabasco, then blitz until the mixture is coarse.
  • To serve, place 1 corn fritters on each serving plate. Top with the avocado smash and garnish with remaining mint leaves, cracked black pepper and lime wedges.
