1. Prepare the sambal: Mix all the sambal ingredients together in a dish and leave aside until needed.

2. Prepare the mealie and potato fritters: Cook the mealies for about 8 minutes in rapidly boiling water and drain. Allow to cool until they can be handled easily. Hold the mealies vertically on a chopping board and cut off the kernels.

3. Mix the kernels, grated potato, flour, spring onions, coriander leaves, ginger, garlic, chillies and sugar to form a thick mixture.

4. Heat the oil in a frying pan and spoon the mixture to form fritters in the frying pan. Fry until golden brown and cooked on both sides. Serve with the sambal.
