Thai Corn Fritters

1 comment

I LOVE Thai Food! I was so excited to find this recipe a few years back and have made them a number of times since then. I originally made these for my oldest and foodiest friend when she visited me. I was longing to make something really unique and tasty and this was just the ticket. It is a bit of prep and there are some ingredients you may not be comfortable using but trust me these are seriously addictive. They will make a memorable appetizer at your next affair. Make the mixture ahead of time and fry them when needed. They also reheat very well if you possibly have leftovers.
