Cheese filled Jalapeno peppers

About the food:
Jalapeno is a Mexican hot & sweet pepper, which has a delicious flavour. I had this food at one of my friend's place, and it was so delicious that I was deeply intrigued to it. I promised myself that I had to learn to prepare this. Then some research, some alterations and here it is! It is a superb snack, or you can serve it as a starter. Try this out, it will never fail you!

Note: you can substitute the jalapeno peppers with bell peppers/capsicum, and it tastes as good.

Preparation time: 2 hrs
Cooking time: 15 mins


4 jalapeno peppers, cut in halves and de-seeded.
1/2 small bowl of white flour
1/2 small bowl of cornflour
3 eggs, whisked
1/2 small bowl of bread crumbs or corn flakes crumbs
1 small pack of soft cheese, at room temperature
salt to taste
1 tbsp of garlic salt
1 tbsp of paprika powder
Vegetable oil for deep frying


1. Cut the halved jalapeno peppers in 3 inches stripes. Boil water in a pan. Put the peppers in the water, cover and cook for about 10mins or until they are tender.Drain the water and wipe the peppers dry with a kitchen tissue.

3.Fill all the pepper portions with a spoonful soft cheese. Freeze for about 2 hrs.

4.Take 3 bowls:

Bowl 1. Mix the corn flour, white flour, salt, garlic powder and the paprika.
Bowl 2. Keep the whisked egg.
Bowl 3. Keep the golden breadcrumbs.

5. Take out the frozen peppers. Dip and coat them with the items in the three bowls one by one. Arrange them on a plate. But do this in batches, as the frozen cheese might start melting.

6.Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Deep fry the coated peppers in batches until they are golden brown.

7. Serve hot with mayonnaise and mustard sauce.
