2 cans Whole kernel sweet corn -- minced
1 bunch Scallions -- sliced in thin rings
1 large Egg
1/2 teaspoon Saffron threads
1 tablespoon Hot water
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/3 cup All purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt and pepper
1/4 cup Safflower oil

Preparation / Directions:

These are called corn patties in Vietnam and are not flavored with saffron. I always liked this recipe and since the Pennsylvania Dutch are famous for putting saffron in their corn chowders, I thought, why not? Steep threads in hot water for 20 minutes. Combine all ingredients and form hamburger-sized flat patties. Coat heavy skillet with oil and when hot, but not smoky, begin frying patties. Brown on both sides and serve immediately.
