1.
Lightly oil a 20-22cm|8"-9" square tin.
2.
Bring the the water to a boil in a large pan.

Slowly add the polenta, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to prevent clumping. Reduce the heat and stir until the polenta is thick and comes away clean from the sides of the pan.
4.
Mix in the butter and cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
5.
Spoon the polenta into the tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Leave to cool, then chill until cold.
6.
When the polenta is firm, turn out and cut into 2cm|1" pieces.
7.
Heat a layer of oil in a frying pan and fry the pieces, a few at a time until crisp and golden on both sides. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
8.
Serve hot garnished with rosemary.
