DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, mix together the herbs, shallot and cheese.
  • Open up the individual blossoms wide enough to insert a teaspoonful of cheese mixture. Do not overfill or fried blossoms will be soggy. Twist the ends of the blossom together gently. Note: there will probably be leftover of the cheese mixture but never fear, it is absolutely delicious spread on a bagel in the morning.
  • In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs together with 1/4 cup milk. In a separate medium bowl, mix together masa harina, salt, and pepper. Dip each blossom into the egg mixture and then roll quickly and evenly in the masa harina mixture, gently shaking off excess. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • Pour 1 inch of oil into a small shallow saucepan or skillet. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Deep-fry the blossoms in batches until they begin to turn light golden brown, turning to cook evenly. Drain on baking rack set over paper towels, and serve immediately.
