SERVES                   3



Fried Mozzarella | Fried Mozzarella Patties

300 g mozzarella cheese

2 eggs

Flour mixed with salt and black pepper

Oil for frying

Dry bread crumbs

Parsley sprigs, to garnish


Preparation Method:

Fried Mozzarella | Fried Mozzarella Patties

Cut the mozzarella cheese into slices about 1 cm thick. Gently remove excess moisture with the kitchen paper.

Heat the oil to 185° C or until a tiny piece of bread sizzles once it is dropped in. While the oil is heating, beat both eggs in a bowl. Spread seasoned flour on one plate and some breadcrumbs on another.

Coat the cheese slices evenly with a thin layer of seasoned flour. Remove any excess. Dip these slices into the egg, then into the breadcrumbs. Dip them again into the egg, then 2nd time into the breadcrumbs.

Deep fry in the hot oil until becoming golden brown. You may have to do this in two batches but do not let the breaded cheese wait for too long or the breadcrumbs coating will separate from the cheese while it is being fried.

Drain on the kitchen paper and serve warm, garnished with parsley.

Fried Mozzarella or Fried Mozzarella Patties are ready. Enjoy!
