  • ¾ cup of red lentil flour (directions for making the lentil flour can be found in my previous post for Lentil Coconut Shrimp Tacos)
  • 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 large egg

  2. Add milk and egg to flour mixture and stir together to create a batter.
  3. Add corn and bacon and fold to combine.
  4. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Heat 4 inches oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 375 degrees.
