Fried Mozzarella Recipe - How to make Fried Mozzarella


Prep Time : 6-10 minutes

Cook time : 0-5 minutes

Serve : 4

Level Of Cooking : Easy


  • Mozzarella cheese 400 grams

  • Eggs 2

  • 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.
