A melt-in-your-mouth treat, which does not melt from your memory forever! These exciting Cheese Poppers feature herbed cheese slice rolls that are batter-fried to perfection.

It is amazing how a small sprinkling of mixed herbs with chilli flakes can transform plain cheese slices into a flavourful treat for your taste buds.

An accompaniment of Schezuan sauce adds great value to the memorable experience. You will also relish other cheesy snacks like Cheese Corn Balls , Cheese and Spring Onion Samosa and Broccoli and Cheese Balls .

Cheese Poppers recipe - How to make Cheese Poppers

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 15 pieces (15 piece )
Show me for pieces

5 amul cheese slices
3/4 cup plain flour (maida)
1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
oil for deep-frying

To Be Mixed Into A Herbed Mixture
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 tsp dry red chilli flakes (paprika)
salt to taste
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (kalimirch)

For Serving
schezuan sauce
  1. Combine the plain flour and ¾ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well to make a smooth batter. Keep aside.
  2. Divide the herbed mixture into 5 equal portions and keep aside.
  3. Place a cheese slice on a flat, dry surface and place 1 portion of the herbed mixture at one end of the cheese slice and roll it up tightly.
  4. Cut the cylindrical roll into 3 equal pieces.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make 12 more poppers.
  6. Dip each piece in the plain flour batter and roll it in bread crumbs till they are evenly coated from all the sides. Repeat this procedure once more with each piece so as to seal the herbed mixture in the cheese slice properly.
  7. Heat the oil in a non-stick deep pan and deep-fry them, 3 at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  8. Serve immediately with schezwan sauce.

This recipe is a must try. Absolutely delicious and easy to make. However I found the batter to liquidy. Added more flour to make it thicker so that cheese does not come out during frying. Also making the starters and putting them in the fridge for more than a day helps - the cheese does not flow out then.

Tarla Dalal    Mixed herbs is just right for boosting the flavour of pasta sauces, soups, stews, stuffing, breads, marinades, butter, salad dressings, stocks, vinegars, vinaigrettes, and even some desserts, drinks and confectionaries.

These poppers were an absolutely cheesy delight to have. I loved how the spices combined so well with the cheese and bread crumbs to provide a perfect balance to the recipe. I know that you suggested using amul cheese slices but after trying it the second time with Go cheese slices, I found that it tasted better the second time around. The flavour and smooth texture of Go cheese had a slight edge and made the poppers pop even more! Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe!

Tarla Dalal    Hi Akshaya, We would suggest to buy maida as it will taste and hold the poppers well. We have not tried with whole wheat flour. Do try it and let us know how it turned out...Happy Cooking !

This is just so cheesy and amazing. I should much much delightful then corn cheese balls also. The herbs add a superb flavour to them. When you take the first bite, the cheese literally melts. It is just irresistible.
