 7. The cheese will not seep out, rather it helps the dough layers to separate. Cook on low flame to make sure all the layers are cooked to crispy texture. Once done, drain these on a kitchen towel and serve hot.

These CHEESE STICKS are a wonderful snack option for kids. You can even add some oats/ragi flour to the maida when making the dough.
