Ricotta Cheese Balls

While cleaning out the fridge I found ricotta cheese which I bought to make something and forgot all about.So I made ricotta cheese balls as a snack for my 19 month old and he enjoyed them. I followed this recipe but tweaked it to our taste.

1&1/2  cups of whole milk ricotta cheese
1extra large  boiled egg minced
1 egg yellow
2tbsps of finley chopped corriander
1 garlic clove grated
1tsp chilli pwd
1tsp cumin and corriander pwds
1tsp amchur pwd or chaat pwd
salt to taste
oil for frying
1 cup bread crumbs
1egg for binding.

Mix everything except  oil,breadcrumbs,egg for binding.After mixing make small round ball or your desired shape and keep aside for 10 or so mins.In the mean time heat oil.In an other bowl beat egg with a little salt and keep aside.Place the bread crumbs in an other plate kee aside.Now dip the ricotta balls in the egg and roll them in the bread crumbs.Make sure that the ricotta balls are coated on all sides.Now gently drop them in to the oil and fry till they are golden brown. Remove, drain the excess oil and serve hot. Enjoy when they are hot with ketchup.

Note: If  the ricotta balls are falling apart add the egg white also and if its too soggy add breadcrumbs.
