How to make it

  1. Heat 1 inch of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.Carefully rinse the blossoms.
  2. Place 1 piece of mozzarella and 1 basil leaf inside each blossom. Carefully twist the petals together to close. Repeat until all blossoms are stuffed.In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Whisk in soda water. Batter should be thin like crepe batter.Dip each stuffed flower in the batter. Hold over the bowl to let excess drip off.Sprinkle a little flour in the oil, if it sizzles the oil is ready. Carefully place each stuffed blossom in the oil. (Note: Fry in batches if you need to, don't over crowd the pan.) Fry until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Turning occasionally.
