Savoury Corn Fitters from New Zealand

Savoury Corn Fitters

Now that school has reopened I have a problem what do I give in the kiddos tiffin box?

To add to my woes she does not have a breakfast, barely gulps down a small cup of milk. 

 She comes home for lunch but she wants something delicious in her tiffin box. Her idea of delicious and mine are mine are poles apart.

 The day I give something she does not want we end up having the tiffin uneaten but loaded with excuses like I had to go to the staff room as I am the CR etc.

About this time I was researching recipes for this trip around the world. I fell for the simplicity of these delicious corn fritters. It also what doctor ordered an egg…

Sorry those who do not eat eggs replace it with 1 tblspn of egg replacer or 1/3 cup of cream.

The original recipe has cheese and ham included but I did not add as I did not have time to grate the cheese and ham I do not do. Please feel free to use them if you like it.

Also the original recipe used flour or maida, APF I replaced it with oats. Another thing she refuses to eat.

The whole thing went down well with tomato sauce. Infact she ate one of the fitters before she left for school… Ahhhhhhh relief!!

Cuisine: Kiwi Cuisine

  • ¼ cup red capsicum/pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup yellow capsicum, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 1 ½ cup oats
  • ¼ cup spring onion chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 can cream style sweet corn,1 tin
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • rice bran oil for frying


  • In a large bowl mix together the capsicum, spring onion, onion, salt and pepper mix well.
  • Add the sweet corn, mix well.
  • Add the oats and give it a nice good stir. Check the seasoning.
  • Add the egg/ egg replacer, baking powder. Mix well.
  • If you feel the batter is dry add a tblspn or two of water. The batter should be of dropping consistency.
  • The original instructions said “Heat 2 tblspn of oil in a non- stick pan add a tableful of batter in the hot oil.”  I did that but then  preferred the method of adding the ladleful of batter  on the hot pan and then adding oil to the sides of the batter, much like how we add oil to a dosa but of course I need a little more oil than the dosa needs. And I did that from the second batch that I made on the same pan. Suit yourself.
  • Fry till golden on both sides.
  • Serve them with tomato sauce.
  • I used the circular cookied dough cutter that i kept on the tava/ skillet and added the batter in it to get the perfect sized round shaped.
