    • Thanks for your reply mam. I tried the very next day, I added rice flour and it came so well. I still doubt if the inner layer will be sticky even after deep frying ? Or you suspect anything wrong in my way of cooking it.

  2. Thanks for posting dis recipe jeyashri.. i had dis in chill n grill… i was searching dis recipe for long time…Yours look the same..Bookmarked 🙂 will make a try soon…the bread crumps u used is home made or packed one?

  3. I have eaten the same dish in vepery, Chennai. Instead of bread crumbs they are using bread. Bread is soaked in water and taken up immediately and it acts as a cover to the cheese ball. How this is possible.

    • Yes they dip the bread in water and immediately take it out and gently squeeze it the excess water. Fill the stuffing and cover it and fry. Thus the bread acts as a cover and forms a crispy outer layer.
