Take the eggs in a ball and slowly dip into the flour, then the egg and then finally the breadcrumbs.

Half fill a deep pan with the oil and heat to around 180C. Take one egg at a time and fry for around 5 minutes until golden brown, remove from the oil and leave to the side to cool before serving.
