  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Rinse fresh produce.

  3. In a food processor, combine flour, coconut milk, egg, lime juice, curry paste and half the corn. Process until smooth. Note: The mixture will be thick. Wash hands after handling raw egg.

  4. Pour mixture into a large bowl and stir in remaining corn, green onions, jalapeƱo, cilantro, salt and pepper.

  5. In a large cast-iron skillet or wok over medium-high heat, add 1/4 to 1/2 inch of oil. Frying in batches, drop tablespoonfuls of batter into the oil and cook until golden in color, about 2 minutes per side.

  6. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and place on paper-towel-lined plates.

  7. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, water and sweet chili sauce. Serve with fritters.
