Chicken Lollipops


Last 1 year has been very hectic .There have been a variety of reasons in the order as below:

1. House recce, buying and then settling in (still in the process!!)
2. Travelling (trip to home after 3 long years)
3. Continuous stay in guests (to the tune of 13 people at a time)

So I thought that this saturday i am definitely not going have anyone come over. But as fate would have it, A and friend decided to discuss visiting each others abode on friday. In such scenario A is predictable , friend has to visit us first before we take the step to his place!.

I again ended up having guests for dinner on Saturday.

I therefore relied on my time tested recipe of Chicken Lollipos The recipe from Chicken Lollipops is adapted from Tarla Dalal's Samsung Microwave Cooking.The original recipe is a microwave version with some ingredients different from what i use and microwaved instead of deep fried.
Here comes a recipe that cannot go wrong!

Ingredients:

750 gms of Chicken Lollipops (store bought)
5 Tbsp of Heinz tomato ketchup (or any other brand, I happened to have this one)
2.5 Tbsp Cornflour
3 Tbsp All Pupose Flour (Maida)
3 Tbsp of Lemon juice
2 tsp Red Chilli powder (or as hot as you want it)
2 Tbsp Garlic Paste
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

Method

  1. Wash and clean Chicken Lollipops and drain all water from it. Add to it all the ingredients mentioned above and mix well.
  2. Keep the marinated chicken for 10 mins at room temperature and then in freezer for 30 mins.
  3. Heat oil in a deep wok and fry the pieces till they are deep red in colour.
Few things to note:

  1. Pour in enough oil so that the lollipops are well immersed.
  2. Oil should be heated very well. (drop a little piece of marination , it should come up imediately)
  3. Reduce the heat after you add the pieces, such that they fry with bubbles but do not burn too soon.
  4. Do not put in too many pieces together. They should be well spread in the oil. I fried 5 pieces at a time in amedium sized wok/Kadhai.
  5. One point to note keep the recipe on the sweeter side by adding red chilli as recommended or less. This makes it very appealing to kids.
Easy ? Now enjoy! :)
