Breaded Mozzarella (Bhajjis)

Breaded Mozzarella (Bhajjis)
This is a cinchy quick fix if you are want to eat something cheesy and well – fried :) You gotta get in the fried stuff once or twice or month or, if you are like me, you will have a craving for it and go berserk when you get your hands on them — Just a small dose of the bad stuff, every now and then 😛

Fresh Mozzarella balls diced to your preference (you do not want to cut them too thin)
For the batter:
1/2 cup of either gram flour or all purpose flour
spices of your choice (I used rosemary, and some herb De Provence)
For spicing
1 tsp ground peppers or
I used 1 tsp of rasam powder
1 cup of bread crumbs
Water to make batter consistency of pancakes or slightly thicker (FOR FLAVIA)

Heat sufficient oil to fry
Make the batter fairly thick
Keep the mozzarella slices, the batter and the bread crumbs organized and follow the pick, dip, roll and drop formula
Pick up a slice, dip in the batter until it is covered
Then roll them a few times in the bread crumbs
Then drop them gently in the oil
Keep the heat in medium, so that the outer shell and the inner batter layer have time to cook – should not take too long at all –
When the color is just right (see photo) remove them from the pan and drain in a paper-toweled colander

Serve Hot – with your favorite dip –
I made a really quick yogurt dip which i will blog soon :) Happy snacking
