burst of flavor
on my tongue
it lingers on

Yeah yeah from my previous posts you must have realized I am a foodie and also like to try my hands on experimenting from time to time.  Now I like it hot and spicy and Jalapenos are my favorite anytime. I have tried searching for fresh ones in Bangalore which unfortunately I have not been able to get my hands on.The next best thing is the pickled one.. Sigh !  The kind of twist that jalapenos provide is mind blowing.The packed heat going down gently down your throat  and it just about lingers on the taste-buds  even after the dish is finished. When it comes down to a punch, Mexicans sure have got it right!

Try adding a piece of Jalapenos to a Vodka with lime cordial (or water), a squeeze of lime and a little salt, a little crushed mint swirl it with a stirrer and feel ur taste-buds explode with excitement For the non-alcoholics chuck the vodka and replace with Jal Jeera and it still works  🙂

    That’s a PERFECT haiku for jalapenos!! 🙂

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      Thnx 🙂

  13. I love the taste of jalapenos, but the oils from fresh jalapenos are too much to deal with. I did that only one time and that was enough for a lifetime. I’ll stick to bottled jalapenos. lol Nice to meet you via the #a2zchallenge. Now following!

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      That oil is perfect for some vinaigrette

  19. pixie says:

    I like Jalapenos! Its the only actual spiciness I get to experience here in some of the foods…
    and jalapenos in a vodka glass sounds just about perfect! 😀

  20. usha menon says:

    Jalapenos, wow its yummy.

  21. That vodka sounds really interesting. I am allergic to jalapenos but maybe the vodka will help.

  22. Love jalapenos…but have never tried it with vodka. You’re giving me a lot of new things to try! 🙂
