crispy lentil fritters, lentil fritters, curry lentils, spicy lentils, french lentils
Food processor or potato masher
Cooked lentils-see my recipe
Frozen corn kernels-thawed
Fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for Frying-I use sunflower oil
Pulse lentils in food processor a few times to break down just slightly. You still want it to be textured.
Pulse thawed corn kernels in food processor a few times to breakdown just slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine lentils, corn, shredded carrots, scallion, cilantro, thyme leaves, flour, egg, paprika. Add in a little salt and black pepper to taste.
Heat oil to high temperature to start. Scoop about 2 Tbsp of lentil mixture for each fritter into hot oil and return heat to medium high. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side.
Remove fritters from oil and place on a cooling rack lined with paper towel.
For frying I use sunflower oil. You can use any seed or nut oil for frying.
These fritters are very light so you need to use a cooling rack to drain excess oil as they cool.
