Popovers with Mint and Serrano pepper



      Thanks Priya Suresh for honoring me to host this month Home Baker Challenge..I have challenged the group with 2 basic recipes 1. Popovers 2. Hot Pies.  These Friendly recipes are easy to adapt to your own preference where you can try them with sweet and savoury version with various herbs and spices...
  
      I made this savoury version popovers with mint and serrano chillies.. I must admit it is so addictive when it is hot.. And you can also have it  with any chutney or dip.. Usually these popovers are made with special Baking tins but I have used muffin tins to make it. But it doesnt have shape has a original popovers but tasted the same..  Let see a short note about popovers.....

        A popover is an American version of Yorkshire pudding and similar batter puddings made in England since the 17th century.  It is light, hollow roll made from eggs, typically baked in muffin tins or dedicated popover pans, which have straight-walled sides rather than angled.

Popovers may be served either as a sweet—topped with fruit and whipped cream for breakfast or with afternoon tea— or with meats at lunch and dinner.  The name "popover" comes from the fact that the batter swells or "pops" over the top of the muffin tin while baking. Another name for them is Lapplander.
