Cheese filled Peppers / Cheese Balls
8-10 Jalapeno Peppers
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp jeera powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp italian seasoning (oregano, thyme, parsley)
salt to taste
Make a slit in the Jalapeno Pepper & set aside.
Mix together cream cheese, shredded mozarella, 1/4 tsp red chilli powder & jeera powder.
Take one spoonful of this mixture & fill inside the slit pepper.
Make a medium-thick batter of the all purpose flour & the spices.
Dip the stuffed pepper in the batter. Roll in bread crumbs.
Repeat if required to get a thicker coating.
Deep fry in oil till golden brown.
For the little ones at home if you DO NOT wish to use the peppers, you can roll the cheese filling into little balls, dip them in the batter, roll in bread crumbs & deep fry for Delicious Cheese Balls.
