Bottled Sweet Chili Sauce for dipping.

Method:

In a food processor, add all ingredients in the first section. Pulse until completely mixed.

Pour into a bowl and add scallions, corn and coconut. Fold ingredients in and allow to rest for a few minutes while oil heats in a frying pan.

These make the plain old corn fritters I'm putting on my blog tomorrow look a little passe. But I forgive you, Devany, because I get to make yours next time!
