Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella is synonymous for cheese in italy. Naples is the city of origin for this cow's milk cheese characterised with a chewy, stringy texture. Sticks of mozzarella cheese are coated with a herbed flour batter, rolled in bread crumbs and then deep fried in smoking hot oil to make this tongue tickling starter! eat these sticks as soon as they are fried to get the taste of melted cheese. Coat the cheese sticks completely with the flour batter and bread crumbs to prevent the cheese from oozing out of the covering when it is being fried. This recipe is an absolute hit with everyone who eats it! i like to serve these sticks with the tomato and red wine sauce but you can also serve them with tomato sauce or ketchup.
