Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Ingredients:

2 eggs
1 cup bread crumbs (Italian seasoned bread crumbs)
½ teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 tablespoon corn starch
25 mozzarella cheese stick (3-4 “ in size)
¼ teaspoon crushed black pepper
Oil for deep frying mozzarella sticks
Water as needed

Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Cooking Method:

1. Beat the eggs with 2 tablespoons water in a bowl.

2. Mix the plain flour, corn starch and 1 tablespoon bread crumbs with some water (appr. ¼ cup water) to make batter.

3. Mix the bread crumbs, crushed black pepper and garlic salt in a medium bowl or plate.

4. Now coat each mozzarella stick in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture and finally in the bread crumbs. Make sure all layers are coated properly (specially the bread crumbs). You can repeat this process for double coating.

5. Freeze the coated mozzarella cheese sticks for at least 45 mins.

6. Heat the oil in a pan. Add a drop of flour mix to make sure oil is heated properly. If flour drop comes to the top straight way, which means oil is heated and ready to use. If you fry the mozzarella without heating the oil properly, mozzarella sticks will be soggy not crispy. So always wait till the oil heated properly before frying mozzarella sticks.

7. Deep fry all frozen mozzarella sticks until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Do not over crowd in the pan for frying. Remove deep fried mozzarella sticks from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.

Serve homemade mozzarella sticks hot with marinara sauce or any dip.

Variation Tips:
Use golden bread crumbs for golden colour.

Do not over cook mozzarella cheese sticks otherwise mozzarella cheese will start melting in the pan and it will be big mess. Of course we want to melt mozzarella cheese sticks in the mouth not in a pan.
