Delicious Corn and Dried Shrimp Fritter

Corn and Dried Shrimp FritterThis simple and delicious fritter recipe is ideal for tea time snacking. If you prefer fresh shrimps, you can substitute them with the dried ones. And, there is no hard and fast rule to give a specific shape to the fritter. Feel free to make smaller or rounder fritters, if you prefer so. You can either shallow fry or deep fry these fritters. I prefer the former approach which lets me give it a bigger and flatter shape. These flavorful fritters taste best with a bowl of fiery chili sauce. You can also experiment with different combinations of dried herbs or condiments used for flavoring. Use peanut oil for frying these fritters to get the best results. Let's make these spicy, fulfilling and mouth-watering fritters in a few easy steps.
