Makes: 8 – 9 fritters
1 cheese cube, grated
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.

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).
