Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella sticks are the delicacies we order as sides while ordering Pizza. Am sure many think its difficult to make yourself, but trust me it is the easiest. When you make these for your kids you can see them happy and the respect for you will increase. It can be a great party snack for kids. When my elder son’s(HARISH’s) friends come home for a play-date he asks me to make these. It just vanishes in minutes. A good after school evening snack for kids.

Cheese is a good source of calcium and sometimes kids will not drink milk, this is the best option for those kids. As they get a good amount of calcium from cheeses.

Serve the Mozzarella Sticks with any sauce.

Note : Can use Mozzarella String Cheese or the block mozzarella works well. If using the block then cut them into rectangular fingers.

Do not use the mozzarella balls in water as they are very watery and will not hold while frying in oil.

Using garlic and oregano in the flour mixture gives a flavorful outcome. Can skip if you don’t like.

Replacing bread crumbs with corn flakes or something similar is to get a crunch. A different variation.

Putting them in the freezer allows it to set and while frying the cheese doesn’t melt too much and ooze out.

Fry them in high flame as slow flame would make the cheese ooze out and it will become a mess. Keep an eye not to burn them in high flame.

The Mozzarella Sticks are ready to be served with any sauce of your choice. Try and let me know if you liked it.
