Preparation -- 5 minutes

POUR the frying/vegetable oil in the frying pan, heat to a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. DRAIN liquid from the mini mozzarella balls package using a colander or strainer.

Pat them dry with a kitchen towel and set them aside. MIX the panko and chilli together on a deep plate and season with pepper and salt. ADD flour in another deep plate, then add beaten egg in another deep plate.

Deep frying mozzarella balls -- 5 minutes

COAT the mozzarella balls one by one into the flour. Coat each mozzarella ball using the beaten egg. Transfer to the plate with the chilli and coat them one final time. STACK the coated mozzarella balls on a plate.

Carefully fry them in about 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Don't overcrowd the frying pan. Since you can eat the cheese raw, it just needs to get hot. Serve immediately with some sweet chilli sauce on the side.
