Thai Corn Cakes

READY IN: 31mins
Recipe by Busters friend

Received in email from Gourmet_recipes_from_around_the _world. the email notes it was adapted from Very Simple Food. Very pretty with either fresh cut or sweet kernel canned corn - frozen doesn't work as well because the kernels skins get tough when frozen. The sweet chili sauce makes the meal - get it; it's cheap & addictive.

This was good! Made it as written except added some chilis in. A bit bland by itself, but the chili sauce takes care of that! It's so versatile, you can add cumin and cheese and sour cream to make it Mexican. Thanks!
