Step 2:

Divide the mixture into small portions and shape them into balls.

Step 3:

Take one of the balls and shape it into an egg, then make the other side pointed. Repeat with the remaining balls.

Step 4:

In a large bowl, add 1/2 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, and a little bit of salt. Slowly pour a small amount of water while mixing to make a batter.

Step 5:

Add the breadcrumbs to a large bowl.

Step 6:

Using your one hand, take the jalapeno popper, dip it into the batter, then carefully drop it into the breadcrumbs. Using your other hand, cover it with the breadcrumbs, then take it and press them to the popper. Do the same for the remaining poppers.

Step 7:

Add more water to the batter to make it thinner. Do the second coat, doing the same process as step 6.
