Crispy on the outside and cheesy on the inside, these mozzarella bites are as much fun to make as they are to eat.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Mozzarella Cheese [Cut into 1 inch cubes]- 1 cup
  • Cornflour - 3 tbsps
  • All purpose flour- 1/4 cup
  • Water -1/4 cup
  • Cornflakes powder/ breadcrumbs- 1 cup
  • Chat masala for sprinkling [optional]
  • Oil for Deep frying

Recipe Preparation

  1. Mix the cornflour and water to make a thick paste. [Add the water a little at a time until you get the right consistency]
  2. Take 3 shallow trays.
  3. Put the all purpose flour in tray 1, the cornflour paste in tray 2 and the cornflakes powder in tray 3.
  4. Toss the cheese cubes in the flour[ tray 1].
  5. Dip them in the cornflour paste. [After placing them in the second tray, move the tray back and forth to coat the cubes evenly with the cornflour mix]
  6. The next step is to get the crunchy crumb. Toss the cheese cubes into the cornflakes powder and shake the tray to give those tiny cubes a beautiful crumb.
  7. Repeat steps- 4,5 and 6 two or three times more [in the same order]. This will help coat and cover the cheese cubes well.
  8. Refrigerate for 1/2 an hour.
  9. Heat the oil and deep fry until the outer turns nice and crisp. Take care not to let it stay too long or the cheese would start to ooze out.
  10. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil, sprinkle chat masala and serve these cheesy delights.
My Tip: You can totally try a shallow fried or an air fried version of the same Or perhaps even baked. I recently bought an Air Fryer and I think it gives a great result. Simply brush the crust with some oil and place them on an aluminium foil / baking tin and then into the air fryer. Much healthier and just as tasty.
