1 can corn (I used white)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 dash cayenne
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
4 tbsp. corn oil
1: Mash the drained corn lightly in a medium size bowl. Add the onion, spices, flour, baking powder, and egg. Stir well and season to taste with salt.
2: Heat the oil in a skillet. Drop tablespoons of the mixture carefully onto the hot oil, far enough apart for them not to run into each other as they cook.
3: Cook, turning each patty only once for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Take care not to turn them too soon, or they will break up.
4: Remove the patties and drain on a paper towel. Serve at once.
We were surprised at how much we liked these, and we talked about ways we'd like to modify the recipe next time we make them. They are so easy, and we usually have the ingredients on hand...probably easy to veganize? Along the way I took some photos.
I found this recipe in "Greatest Ever Party Food", Parragon Publishing.
