    • Cut the dough into standardized pieces (12 cm in length, 2 cm in width).
    • Place a slice of cheese on the dough and roll it up, removing the plastic as you roll to seal it well.
    • Ensure the dough is tightly wrapped around the cheese to avoid empty spaces.

    • Use a knife to cut the cigarrettes to the desired size.

    • Dip the cigarrettes in the batter and coat with Panko breadcrumbs.
  4. Frying:
    • Heat the oil to a temperature between 100 to 120 degrees Celsius (212 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit).

    • Avoid frying with bare hands; use appropriate utensils.
  5. Storage:
