  • 400g - Bocconcini
  • 250ml - cake flour
  • - salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 - eggs, beaten
  • 250ml - polenta
  • - oil for deep frying
  • - lemon wedges
These deep-fried cheese balls are delicious in a green salad, especially one with an anchovy dressing.

Drain the bocconcini on paper towels. Mix the cake flour, salt and pepper, and dip the bocconcini to coat.

Dip into the beaten egg and then completely coat in polenta.

Heat the oil and test the temperature with a cube of bread. Deep-fry the bocconcini balls a few at a time until golden brown. Drain and serve hot with lemon wedges.
