If you like savoury potato pancakes, latkes, etc. you'll love this one! Goes well as a lunch, casual dinner or even appetizer. We ate the leftovers for breakfast :-) This recipe comes from my new favorite cookbook "Bill's Food" by Bill Granger - an Aussie chef.

Cafe style corn fritters! These are absolutley Delicious. Definitely a keeper but I am going to substitute the water for milk or half and half to make a slightly lighter fritter.
This made for a tasty breakfast this morning. I liked mine sprinkled with Malden sea salt and a squirt of lemon. I didn't make the chili sauce this time around (used bottled stuff) but will give it a whirl next time.
