Recipe: Corn & Haloumi Fritters

I recently spotted some delicious looking fritters on Not Quite Nigella and realised I hadn’t made any in a long time, and I love me some fritters, so this had to be rectified fast. I feel like fritters are one of the only foods that works equally as well for every meal of the day – add a poached egg and you’ve got breakfast, or some chutney and a salad and lunch or dinner is sorted.

Sure, you can eat eggs at any time of the day, but I still feel like I’m eating a breakfast food if I have them for dinner. I’ve also been known to have pizza for breakfast, but again, that’s somewhat of a novelty! Fritters though, they just seem to cross from one meal to the next with ease. Anyway, I guess the point here is we should all be eating more fritters.

I used Lorraine’s recipe as a kick off point, and then made some tweaks of my own, particularly the addition of haloumi, as everything is better with haloumi!

Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 420g can of creamed corn
  • Small red onion
  • 2 eggs
  • Can of corn kernels
  • 250g haloumi
  • 2tbs fresh chives
  • 1/2tsp sugar

Corn and Haloumi Fritters


  1. Finely dice the onion and set aside
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour and baking powder
  3. In a jug whisk together the creamed corn and eggs until combined
  4. Add the creamed corn mixture to the flour and whisk together
  5. Grate the haloumi and add to the mixture with the corn kernels, red onion and finely chopped chives. Mix to combine
  6. Taste and season with sugar as needed
  7. Heat oil in a non-stick frypan and cook the fritters, flipping when bubbles appear on the surface
  8. Serve immediately with your choice of toppings

Corn and Haloumi Fritters

I had mine for lunch with some tomato chutney on top – delicious! The sweetness of the corn and the saltiness of the haloumi work perfectly together, and they definitely satisfied my need for fritters!

      It certainly does, I could eat haloumi for every meal and not get bored of it (although I probably shouldn’t!)
