Mozzarella in Carrozza ( For International Food Challenge )


Now you must be confused reading the name of this dish . But Carroza in Italy literally means a carriage. So that means it is yummy cheese in a carriage of crunchy and crispy fried bread. This month for the IFC we were given a few chosen recipes from Campania - Italy by Priya Suresh

 I chose this simple dish not only because of its simplicity but because I am a die hard fan of cheese and just couldn't resist trying it. It turned out to be super delicious and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Though the original recipe mentions that we need to deep fry these bread cases. Because of diwali sweets doing the rounds and heavy meals throughout the week I chose to shallow fry them .The taste was truely amazing.

Thanks Priya , Shobana  and Saras  for this lovely dish...







Ingredients :

8 .......................bread slices
4 .......................cheese slices ( I used Britannia )
4 tbsp.................maida
2 ......................eggs
1 cup..................bread crumbs
1 tsp...................pepper powder
salt
oil for shallow frying

Method :

Remove the sides of the bread slices.

Place the cheese slice in between two bread slices.

Evenly apply maida to the slices.

Break the eggs and whip them and keep in a flat plate.

Now dip the slices smeared with maida in egg for 2/ 3 minutes.

Now coat these slices with bread crumbs and cover them properly with crumbs on all sides.

Now shallow fry these slices on a non stick pan .
