DIY Food: Cheesy Cheeselings
Cheeselings were an all-time favourite snack.
Every time mom pulled out a long, cylindrical jar with a red lid out of her grocery bag, we'd pounce on her to grab these tiny cheese squares that were a source of pure joy back then. A box of these cheesy, crunchy beauties meant to last a whole month, however they never quite lasted for more than a day in the house!
While we still crave for these mini delights, adulthood and health goals make us refrain from buying them from a store. But you can still make your own cheeselings at home. Here's how:
What you will need:
100 gms grated cheese
2 ½ cups flour
1 cup gram flour or besan
½ cup buttermilk
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp pepper powder
1 tsp ginger powder
½ tsp salt
3 tsp oil
3 tsp milk
1. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
2. Pour the oil, milk and buttermilk and mix well until it forms a dough.
3. Keep aside and let it rest for a while.
4. Roll out the dough and cut them into small diamond shapes.
5. Deep fry them until light golden.
6. Drain excess oil, let it cool and serve.
