  • Cover and Let it rest for 30 minutes in a refrigerator.  Heat oil in a kadai to deep fry.
  • Drop a pinch of dough to check the oil temperature. If it rises to the top immediately, oil temperature is right. Now lower the flame to medium. Drop 3 to 4 nuggets in each batch. Cook patiently in low to medium flame till it turns golden.  Flip it whenever needed. Do not keep the flame high because the outer layer browns faster and cheese starts to ooze out from the balls. Remove when it turns golden in all the sides. Drain the excess oil in a tissue paper.

Note

  • Panko bread crumbs helps to retain the crispness for long time. But you can use homemade bread crumbs too by grinding 4 to 6 bread slices in mixie.
  • You can also double coat the corn flour paste and bread crumbs as I did for my corn cheese balls recipe.
  • Adjust the quantity of chilli flakes and oregano as per your taste.
  • Addition of garam masala is optional and not mentioned in original recipe. I used it.
  • You can make this nuggets ahead and freeze till use. For this, roll the nuggets in bread crumbs and refrigerate it till you deep fry it.
  • I used Cheddar cheese in this recipe. You can use any processed cheese, mozarella, Parmesan etc.
