  • One tablespoon coriander leaves, chopped
  • Four-five cheese chutney slices
For binding
  • Half cup thick maida batter
  • Half cup breadcrumb

Method: In a mixing bowl add potato mashed, soaked bread slices, salt, and coriander leaves. Mix well. Now make long pattie and stuff it with one cheese slice. Make six-seven like the same. Keep them in the freezer for one hour. Now, remove all the patties from the freezer and first coat them into maida batter and then roll them into breadcrumbs. Deep fry patties into hot oil until turn golden brown. Remove on absorbent paper. Serve immediately.

Masala Onion Cheese Rings

Ingredients
  • Two large white onions
  • Three-four slices peri peri cheese slices
  • One teaspoon red chili powder
  • One teaspoon salt
For coating
  • One cup refined flour
  • Half cup corn flour
  • One cup breadcrumbs
  • Half litre Oil, for frying

Method: Peel and cut onions into one-centimeter rings, then separate the rings. Cut four even strips of cheese slices. Marinate the onion rings with little oil, salt, and chili powder. Place the smaller onion ring in the middle of a larger one. Fill the gap between the rings with the strips of cheese.

Now repeat the same for the remaining onion rings and freeze them for an hour. Now for the tempura batter, mix the refined flour, and corn flour add water and form a lump free batter. Heat oil in a pan over high flame. Take out the rings and dip them in tempura batter. Coat them in breadcrumbs. Once the oil gets hot, fry the rings for two minutes or until golden brown. Remove on a paper towel to drain out the excess oil.
Note: Do not fry for too long as the cheese may ooze out.

Mozzarella Caroza

Ingredients
  • One ball fresh mozzarella
  • Four slices white bread, crusts trimmed
  • Two large eggs, beaten, or more as needed
  • One and a half teaspoon minced garlic
  • One heaping teaspoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Plain bread crumbs, as needed
  • Olive oil, for frying

Method: Cut the mozzarella into enough 1/4-inch thick slices to cover two slices of the bread. Reserve the remaining mozzarella for another use. Top the cheese with the remaining two slices of bread, to make two sandwiches, and press down to compact.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, garlic, and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Put the breadcrumbs on a plate. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, pour the oil into a depth of 1/4-inch. When the oil is hot, dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, dredge in the bread crumbs, and fry, turning once, until crisp and the cheese has melted. Cut each sandwich in half and serve, while still hot, with the marinara sauce on the side for dipping.

Cheese Balls

Ingredients
  • Two cups of cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • Three-four cups of mozzarella, finely shredded
  • Three-four cups of Parmesan, finely shredded
  • Three jalapeno peppers, diced
  • Two eggs
  • One teaspoon baking powder
  • One third cup of plain flour
  • One teaspoon salt
  • Oil for frying
  • Onion sauce or sweet chili sauce

Method: To make the balls, combine cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese with two lightly beaten eggs, plain flour, jalapeno peppers and baking powder in a large bowl.

Stir until the mixture comes together, pressing it together if needed. Measure each ball as a scant one tablespoon of the mixture (don't make them too big because they'll puff on cooking) and roll into balls.

Deep-fry cheese balls in hot oil, until they turn golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve with homemade salsa.
