Cheese Fritters

Cheese Fritters -  An  easy and tasty deep fried snack, made of grated cheese cube, sliced onions, egg, flour, baking powder and spices. Serve as a starter or with tea / coffee. A super quick deep fried snack !!!

Makes: 8 – 9 fritters


1 cheese cube, grated

1 egg

2 tablespoon all purpose flour (maida)

¼ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon red chilli powder

2 pinches pepper powder (or ¼ teaspoon)

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

2 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves (or a mix of mint and coriander leaves)

1 tablespoon water

200 ml oil (to deep fry)


In a bowl, mix all the batter ingredients together with the help of a thick tablespoon  and make a batter with 1 tablespoon  water.  It should be medium thick / dropping  consistency .  Cover and keep this batter for 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a frying pan / karahi.  Do not fry on high heat. It will brown immediately and inside portion won’t cook / fry properly. Reduce heat to medium and drop teaspoons (or use small spoon which shape like ice cream scoop to get evenly round shape ) of the batter (6 - 7  fritters at a time – depending upon the size of pan) and fry till golden color on both the sides.

Drain and place on kitchen towel  / paper towels to absorb excess oil. Please use 3 – 4 paper towels to absorb extra oil from fritters (both the sides).

Serve hot as an evening snack with Tomato ketchup  / any dip or serve as a starter or as a side dish with Indian breads or a plain snack with tea / coffee...
