  • Set egg mixture, bread and corn flour side by side while rolling the chicken mixture.
  • Make sure cheese should be covered with chicken mixture. Otherwise while deep frying it will spread in oil.
  • At low flame, chicken balls will absorb oil and at high flame, they will burn. Make sure the flame is in middle.
