  1. Place the flour, baking powder and xanthan gum in a large bowl, slowly whisk in the milk and beaten egg, until well combined with no lumps. Add in the onion, corn, parsley, half the chopped mint, ground cumin, 1 tsp sea salt and a few grindings of black pepper. Stir everything together to combine.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and set over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add 2 level tablespoons of batter for each fritter and flatten into little rounds. Fry in batches, without overcrowding the pan, for about 3 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Combine together the yogurt, honey and remaining mint and season with salt and pepper. Serve the fritters in a little stack (about 4 per person) with the yogurt on the side.

Gluten-free cooking tip: Xantham gum aids in gluten-free baking making them less crumbly and makes gluten-free pastry easier to roll and handle. It's available in specialist health food stores and in some supermarkets.​
