Breaking my tradition of sweet beginnings every time I ‘restart’ writing on the blog, here is this awesome recipe of yummy mozzarella cheese sticks I had tried out some time back. My comfort food! 🙂 Really simple to make as well!

Ingredients

  1. A packet of frozen mozzarella cheese(I use milky mist brand as I feel that is the tastiest brand.)
  2. 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  3. 4 tbsp cornflour
  4. Seasoning(salt, pepper, red chili flakes, oregano, and the little sachets we get from Pizza hut 😉 )
  5. 1 cup Bread Crumbs

Method

  1. Cut the mozzarella cheese into sticks. Make sure to keep the mozzarella cold so that it does not melt completely when frying
  2. Make a batter out of the all-purpose flour, cornflour, seasoning and water. The batter should be of thick consistency.
  3. Dip the cheese sticks into the batter and then into the bread crumbs. Make sure the coating is even and there are no gaps.
  4. Heat the oil to medium heat so that it doesn’t take time to fry the coating. You can choose to either deep fry or shallow fry the sticks. Both ways turn out pretty good. I personally prefer shallow frying.  Remove from heat when the coating turns a beautiful golden brown.

NOTE- When you put in the second batch of mozzarella, make sure the oil is hot enough as the previous batch might have decreased the temperature of the oil. The sticks should not remain on the fire for too long as the cheese might ooze out in the pan itself.
