Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tub SPAR plain Feta Cheese (200 g nett)
  • 140 g chilli-bite mix powder (225 ml)
  • SPAR Sweet Chilli Sauce

Recipe Method

  1. Cut each feta round equally into 8 wedges.
  2. Mix enough water into the chilli bite mix, to make a soft dropping consistency.
  3. Gently heat a pan of sunflower oil to a depth of 3 cm.
  4. Turn each feta wedge in the chilli bite batter until completely but not too thickly coated, and transfer directly into the hot oil. Fry for 15-20 seconds, turning over once, until the coating is puffy and lightly browned all over.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, lift out the bites onto crumpled kitchen paper to drain slightly.
  6. Serve freshly fried with a dipping bowl of SPAR Sweet Chilli sauce.

Hints & Tips

For cocktail parties and bulk catering, supply a bowl of toothpicks or cocktail wooden forks for purposes of food hygiene when dipping.
