1 Remove husks and silks from corn, then boil gently for about 12 minutes, or until tender. Drain, then drape cobs them with paper towels until cool enough to handle. Using a large sharp knife, cut the kernels off the cobs.

2 Put corn kernels in a bowl and add green onions, parsley, basil, eggs, cream, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well, then in the flour.

3 Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto a hot well-oiled barbecue hot plate (cast-iron griddle). Cook fritters until golden on both sides. Drain fritters briefly on crumpled paper towels. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately with a biting salsa, or sweet Thai chilli sauce.
