Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • Potatoes – 2
  • Carrots – 3, medium
  • Sweet corn kernels – 1 cup
  • Basil leaves – 2 cups, loosely packed
  • Corn flour – 4 tbsp or more if required
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  1. Boil the potatoes and carrots [I added carrots too to get a crunch as well as a bright color in my fritters!] till soft but crunchy. Drain all water from them and take in a large bowl.
  2. Mash the boiled potatoes and carrots and mix well. Steam the sweet corn, drain out the water and add it to the potato-carrot mixture.
  3. Chop the basil leaves. Add the cornflour and chopped basil to the mashed potato and mix well to get dough-like texture.
  4. Heat any flavorless oil like sunflower or canola in a deep frying wok. Take a spoonful of the mixture, give it a shape of a patty or any shape you like and tip it into the hot oil.
  5. Fry them on high heat since all the ingredients are already cooked. Take them out once they are golden brown and soak the excess oil on a tissue paper.
  6. Serve the hot & crispy potato fritters with tea and enjoy the warmth of winter!
