Sweet corn is a type of maize which contains more sugar than any other maize varieties. Sweet corn is packed with protein, dietery fibre, carbohydrates, thiamine, vitaminA, Vitamin C and folates. Other than vitaminC all the other nutrients in sweetcorn remains intact even after cooking.
I used to buy canned sweetcorn everytime which is handy and makes life much easier but this i saw in market some fresh sweetcorn, i got them and i just steamed it. It tasted so amazing, far better than the canned ones. I almost finished more than half of the sweetcorn before making the recipe, so if possible try to use the fresh one which increases the taste of this fritters.
