Mielie Fritters

EYHO and Dewald from One.Dog.Chicken whip up delicious MIELIE FRITTERS in no time!

Cheap and fast using cupboard basics! All you have to do fresh on the side is a little salsa of your choice.


Feeds: about 6 medium fitters in total
Prep time: 1 minute
Cooking time: 8 minutes



1 cup (250ml) cake flour
1 teaspoon (5ml) baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 egg
1 spring onion, finely chopped
½ cup (125ml) corn kernels in brine, drained
Olive oil, for frying


Small handful coriander, roughly chopped
1 avo, peeled and diced
½ chilli, finely chopped, optional
Juice of 1 lime or lemon, optional
Salt and pepper, to taste
Sweet chilli sauce, to dunk, optional


Mix all the ingredients for the fritter in a bowl. At first the batter will look dry, but keep mixing until the ingredients come together.
Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium frying pan.
Turn down to medium so the oil is not too hot, otherwise the outside of the fritter will burn whilst the inside is still raw.
Spoon a tablespoon scoop of the batter in the oil, frying about 2-3 at a time for 2 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile chop and mix the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl.
Test the first fritter by cutting in half to make sure they’re cooking through.
When all fritters are done, spoon the salsa over to serve perhaps with the sweet chilli sauce on the side to dunk the fritters in.
