This crunchy accompaniment is cheese, cheese and cheese all the way through, so nothing can please cheese-lovers more! A simple flavouring of oregano and chilli-flakes ensures that the overall effect is very pleasing.
Fried mozzarella sticks can also be served as a party starter . Just keep a few things in mind when making it though… the oil should be very hot and the sticks should be deep-fried over a high flame. Also, you can double-coat the sticks with the batter and the crumbs so that the cheese does not ooze out of the covering.
Serve as an accompaniment to sandwiches, burgers , pastas and soups .
- Combine all the ingredients along with ½ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well to make a thick batter. Keep aside.
- Cut the mozzarella cheese into 14 long sticks of 75 mm. (3”) x 25 mm. (1”) with 1 cm thickness.
- Dip each cheese stick into the batter so that it is evenly coated on all the sides.
- Roll the cheese sticks in bread crumbs till they are evenly coated from all the sides.
- Heat the oil in a deep kadhai and deep-fry 2 to 3 cheese sticks at a time on a high flame for approx. 30 seconds or till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Serve immediately.
- While deep-frying, do not turn the stick too many as they might break and the cheese might ooze out.
