A gooey, cheesy, saucy and spicy starter with a mind-boggling flavour and texture, Stuffed Jalapenos is sure to excite anybody who takes a bite!

Here, roasted jalapenos are stuffed with a creamy paneer mixture, topped with chunky salsa and cheese, and baked to perfection.

The outcome is unimaginably tasty and must be experienced first-hand because no description can do justice to it.

Delectably spicy and saucy, this starter does not need any accompaniments.

You can also try other scrumptious stuffed treats like the Stuffed Veg Mushrooms with Paneer or Stuffed Potato Skins.

The combination of paneer and hung curd with jalapenos is very unique. The chunky salsa on top gave a good bite and flavor to the dish. Must try!
