Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels, ground to a pulp
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1/2 tsp anis seed, ground or pounded w/mortar and pestle
  • 5 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Oil for frying

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients. If too liquid, add just a small amount of all-purpose flour and mix well. Drop in hot (375oF) frying oil a spoonful at a time. Should yield enough for 4 people.

Note: If you add a little bit of vinegar, about 1/2 teaspoon, to the batter, the fritters will not absorb as much oil.
