Fried Mozzarella

Main Ingredients

Mozzarella cheese , Eggs





Level Of Cooking



  • Mozzarella cheese
    400 grams
  • Eggs
  • Refined flour (maida)
    1/2 cup
  • Salt
    to taste
  • Black peppercorns crushed
    1/4 teaspoon
  • Bread crumbs
    1 cup
  • Oil
    to deep-fry
  • Parsley
    a few sprigs


Step 1

Cut the mozzarella cheese into one-inch squares with half-inch thickness. Gently pat off any excess moisture with an absorbent paper. Whisk the eggs lightly and keep aside. Season the flour with salt and freshly crushed peppercorns.

Step 2

Spread the seasoned flour on one plate and bread crumbs on another plate. Press the cheese slices into the flour, coating them evenly with a thin layer of flour. Shake off any excess.

Step 3

Dip them into the egg, then roll them in breadcrumbs. Repeat this process one more time. Heat sufficient oil in a kadai or wok to a smoking point and fry the cheese slices until golden brown.

Step 4

Drain onto an absorbent paper. Serve hot immediately (as mozzarella has a tendency of melting fast) garnished with sprigs of parsley.
