- Gouda or Edam cheese – 200 g
- Bulgarian red pepper – 1 pc.
- eggs – 2 pcs.
- wheat breadcrumbs with bran – 150 g
- flour (for sprinkling) – 100 g
- refined vegetable oil (for deep frying) – 700-800 ml
- sour cream – 100 g
- fresh cucumber – 1 pc.
- garlic – 1 clove
- dill – 1 piece
How to cook:
1. Grind cheese on a fine grater or pass through a meat grinder. Grind the pepper with a blender into porridge, squeeze out the released juice.
2. Prepare three small balls: pour the flour into the first, break the eggs into the second and stir with a fork, pour the bread into the third.
3. Mix cheese and pepper and make 8 balls from the resulting mass. Dip each in turn in flour, egg and breadcrumbs.
4. Pour vegetable oil into a small pot and heat over maximum heat. For deep frying, the temperature of the oil is important: if it is not enough, the balls will absorb a lot of oil, and the cheese will run out; if overheated, the oil will start to smoke and cooking on it will be harmful. To check the temperature, drop a small piece of bread into the oil: if it immediately rises and begins to actively fry, then the temperature is right.
5. Fry the balls in oil (it must be actively boiling) until light brown, remove with a slotted spoon on a paper towel.
6. Prepare a sauce of sour cream and grateful cucumber, adding chopped dill, salt and garlic to them if you want. Serve the balls warm with the sauce.
