Our most-favoured fritters are corn (often because all that is left with the flour, eggs and cheese is a packet of frozen corn kernels in the freezer, or we are lucky enough to have roadside stalls with cheap fresh corn!). We’ve come up with a few different variations over the years though. These have been a lifesaver in floods too when we couldn’t get out to get supplies. The boys love them drizzled with sweet chilli sauce and the girl just likes her straight out of the pan.
Fritters are also great for the lunchboxes (if there’s ever any leftover).
Life for us has been all about survival on a shoestring budget. I've learnt how to live on very basic (and cheap) staples and I cook from scratch and don't buy prepackaged mixes of anything. I've raised three happy and healthy kids and I believe that food is central to good communication and a happy and connected life!
I have an unpublished cookbook manuscript that lives on my kitchen bench. This is the collection that I have fed my family from for many years, all made from a core list of practical and economical ingredients. The manuscript is splattered with butter, flour and milk from daily use. It moves between the kitchen and the office as I edit and test-kitchen the recipes.
