This recipe uses aquafaba instead of eggs. It is better to roll the cheese balls in flour, followed by aquafaba, bread crumbs, and then repeat the aquafaba and breadcrumb once more for best coating. This ensures that while frying, the balls won't break apart easily. It is enough to fry the balls for about 3 minutes on medium flame and not more than that. Else, the balls will begin to crack open and the cheese will ooze out. This 3 minute frying gives a perfect gooey and stringy cheese ball.
