Add the juice of 1 lime & a good dash of olive oil & stir everything well together. Finally, season the tomato salsa with a good pinch of salt, pepper & sugar to taste & set aside until serving.
For the corn bean patties, combine 1 can of corn (drained), 2 eggs, 2 heaping tablespoons of flour, 1 heaping teaspoon of cumin & a good pinch of salt & pepper in a mixing bowl & mix with a hand blender for about 30 seconds until all ingredients are evenly mixed & slightly thickened
Drain a can of black beans (or kidney beans), rinse briefly & then stir/fold into the corn mixture. Heat up a large pan with plenty of oil, give the dough into the pan in portions of 1 – 2 tablespoons & fry golden brown for 3 – 4 minutes on each side over medium heat.
Carefully turn the corn bean patties once, then lift out of the pan & drain on kitchen paper. Dish up the done corn bean fritters on plates & serve with the tomato salsa. Have fun cooking!
