DIRECTIONS: 1- Batter: 1- Combine corn starch, kefir cheese, flour and 3 tbsp of rose water, stir well until completely mixed. 2- Cover the container with a lid. 3- Allow the mixture to rest overnight (3 hours or more) on a warm room temperature.

Keep the mixture warm throughout the baking. 7- Back to the corn starch container, open the container, add baking soda, and water (1/4 cup approx.) to loosen the batter (resemble the batter in the video). and mix well. 8- Heat vegetable oil in a pot, do not overheat. Note: to test oil's temperature, drop a small portion of the batter into the oil and it should come back up and float slowly, in 1 or 2 seconds. 9- Place an egg ring (4 inches wide) in the pot, vegetable oil should not exceed or overlap the ring. 10- Transfer the batter into a piping bag and use a thin tip. 11- Pour/Swirl the batter into the egg ring. 12- In few seconds the batter will float, remove the ring and allow the zoolbia to fry a turn gold.
