  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese with cheddar, mozzarella, minced jalapeños and salt and mix very well. Divide into baby potato-sized portions and shape each portion into a bullet.
  2. Heat oil in a kadhai or wok over medium heat.
  3. Dip the prepared bullets (poppers) in egg and roll in breadcrumbs. Add to the hot oil and deep fry till golden and crisp. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
