I’m back again with yet another delicious recipe for a snack that I have been loving for the past three months or so. I’ve seen a lot of recipes online, but I tried to add a little touch of my own.
So here we go!!
You will need:
- A block of Mozzarella cheese (make sure its a local brand because imported cheese is not halal)
- 1/2 cup Cornflour
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp Yakhni powder
- 1/4 tsp White pepper
- Bread crumbs
- Crushed Cheetos
- Crushed Catty chins
- 2 Eggs
- 1tbsp Milk
- Chaat Masala
Preparing the sticks:
Cut the block of cheese into sticks. Size of your choice.
Take cornflour, flour, white pepper and 1/2 tsp yakhni powder, mix it together and coat the mozzarella sticks in this mixture dusting off the excess.
Keep the sticks aside.
In a wide bowl beat the eggs. Add milk and the remaining yakhni powder (1/2 tsp). Mix it together.
In a separate bowl add the bread crumbs Cheetos and catty chins. Mix them together, this will prepare the first coating of your sticks. It should look something like this.
Now take your coated sticks one by one and dip them first in the egg mixture and then in the Cheeto-bread crumb mixture. Make sure that no area is left while coating them with the egg and the crumbs. Put them in the freezer for one hour.
Take the sticks out of the freezer and now repeat the process, dip them in the egg mixture but this time coat them only with plain bread crumbs (no cheetos or cattychins added). The reason why we do this is because if the outer coating contains cheetos they will burn during frying and will leave a bitter taste.
Put these double coated sticks in the freezer overnight.
Take them out of the freezer and fry them. Sprinkle some chaat masala while hot and they are ready to eat.
Notice that the inner layer is orange as compared to the outer one. That is because the outer layer contains bread crumbs only.
Hope you liked this recipe. Please do share if you try it out.
Until next time.
