Indonesian Corn Fritters

I've been busy since I came back home after 2 months travelling , try to catch up with everything . And the important thing was looking a school for my daughter. I can feel that she is more lonely since she came back home, well.. over there she had many friends around . That's why I think is a good idea to put her on a school. It was not hard to find a great school , I've been searching since last year.

Today is her first day of school. She is more exciting than me, to be honest . I was so nervous. Her pre-school schedule is 2 days a week for full day. It's mean I won't see her at least for 5 hours. But , story is totally different. She enjoyed the time at school. Oh .. well.. mom need to be relax for awhile.

When she came back from school , I'd like to give her a little snack like corn fritters. These delicate fritters are a great way to shine the spotlight on sweet, summer corn. Serve them as a main course accompanied by a hearty salad or as an appetizer on their own.

Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter into heated oil and fry until golden, about 3 minutes (work in batches of 4 or 5). Drain on a baking pan lined with paper towels. Serve with yogurt dip or chilli sauce.
