I got this receipe from a Chef in Taj Connemara, that is were I tasted these cheese balls for the first time. I do not make them often as its highly fattening. Last week my colleague and good friend of mine Kozue Kawashima was in India for a training purpose. She had asked me to cook something for her.
For a long time, my team mates were troubling me to prepare cheese balls , and hence they cashed in the opportunity and pushed me to prepare this.
Cheese bar - 400 gms
Corn Kernels - 100 gms
Maida - half cup
Bread crumbs - 2 cups
Oil for deep fry
Grate cheese and mix corn kernels with it . Roll into small balls . Make a batter out of maida and water. Heat oil in a wok. When the oil is hot, dip the cheese balls in the maida batter and roll it over the bread crumbs such that it is evenly coated and put them in the oil . Deep fry three at a go. Wait till they turn golden brown. Remove on a tissue paper and serve with tomato sauce.
Kozue liked the Cheese balls very much .. and enjoyed it .
According to me the most important aspect about cooking is when people relish your cooking and the bowl is completely empty . This happened when I made these Corn cheese balls and took them to office. I was completely satisfied with my cooking . And was very happy that day . She has gone back to Japan, but still keeps telling about the cheese balls that I made for her.
