Makes 16


  • 420g can corn kernels, drained, rinsed
  • 4g pkt lightly dried chives
  • 200g haloumi cheese, grated
  • 200g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp all-purpose seasoning
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Rice bran oil, for shallow frying
  • Sea salt, to serve
  • Chopped tomato, to serve

  1. Combine corn, chives, half the haloumi, half the cheddar, flour and seasoning in a bowl. Add milk and stir to combine. Combine remaining cheese together in a separate bowl.
  2. Add enough oil to come 1cm up the side of a large frying pan and place over a medium-high heat. Spoon 1/4 cup batter into the pan and cook for 2 minutes or until golden underneath.
