Fried Goat Cheese

  • about 1 cup goat cheese
  • 1/3rd cup chopped basil
  • 1/3rd cup chopped mint 
  • 1/3rd cup chopped cilantro 
  • 1/2 lemon 
  • 2 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose white flour
  • 1/2 cup tempura flour 
  • 1/4th club soda 

Avocado and Jalapeño Chutney

  • 1 cup Jalapeños
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 cup Cilantro
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 5 cloves of Garlic
  • 3-4 tsp oil

Directions

Start by chopping up your basil, mint and cilantro and place in a bowl with lemon and your goat cheese. Mix well and set aside.

Start to make your chutney by placing all your components in a food processor, Jalapeños, lemon, avocado, cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic and oil. Blend until a smooth creamy sauce forms. 

Make your batter for the goat cheese by mixing all purpose flour, tempura flour and sparkling water. If it gets too watery, you can add some more flour or vise versa. (it should be a wet batter)

Heat a deep pan with vegetable oil and start to form your goat cheese mixture into really round balls. Place in batter and fry until golden brown. (you can also put panko or breadcrumbs on this as well if you'd like, for a more crispy breading). 

Top with cilantro and serve along side your chutney!
