Hupi Jiao - Tiger Skin Peppers

Hupi Jiao - Tiger Skin Peppers

A fun, simple side dish to a Chinese or South Asian meal. Quick deep frying in high heat scalds the peppers’ skin, creating an interesting texture while bringing out the sweetness of the peppers. 


  • 250 g green peppers (Hungarian etc.)
  • Oil for frying
  • 2 tsp black vinegar
  • 2 tsp Yunnan Blend, ground


  1. 1

    Heat at least an inch of oil in a wok. When oil is very hot but not smoking, add the chilies and fry vigorously for a few minutes, flipping when necessary. The skin should begin to puff and blister.

  2. 2

    Remove peppers from oil using tongs or a slotted spoon and place on a serving platter.

  3. 3

    Splash the black vinegar on top and sprinkle on the Yunnan blend. Serve hot or room temperature.
