Parmesan Balls Ingredients
- vegetable oil for deep-frying
- 175 g/6 oz Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Parmesan Balls Recipe
Heat the oil in a large heavy pan until very hot.
Mix the Parmesan with the egg whites and cayenne, keeping aside a small quantity of cheese for dusting the balls.
Using the remaining cheese to dust your hands, form the mixture into 12 small balls.
Deep-fry the balls in two batches until golden brown. Drain and serve immediately.
