I've got about 10 variations that are deep-fried and none of them give a cooking time just "cook till brown" or "cook till golden brown".

The amount of milk used in the recipe depends on the vessel you're using, and the size of the pepper. It must be deep and wide enough to allow you to get the wash completely over and around the pepper.
