  1. Put the corn in a mixing bowl and add the sweet pepper, scallions and hot pepper. Sprinkle with the cumin, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper, and stir to blend. Add the milk, and stir to blend thoroughly.
  2. Heat enough oil barely to cover the bottom of a pan, preferably nonstick. Spoon the batter, about 1/4 cup at a time, into the pan, and cook the fritters about 2 minutes or until golden brown on one side. Turn, and cook about 2 minutes on the second side. As you prepare each batch of fritters, add oil to the pan as necessary.
