Chicken Sausage Lollipops is one of the most interesting and yummylicious dish for after school snacks or even back to home snack. A perfect snack to munch for tea time.

Wonder what to prepare for kids, when they are back home and found a packet of sausage lying in the chiller tray. Thought of deep frying them in a batter with a toothpick inserted inside to hold, which would be more comfortable for kids to munch. Let me share the recipe…

  • Take the corn meal, chilli powder, garam masala, black pepper powder in a bowl. Mix all these together.
  • Pour in ¼ cup of water little by little and mix them well (be sure no lumps should be formed).
  • Break in the egg and mix them well with the batter, let it rest for 5 mins (the batter should be little thick, so that it can coat the sausage).
  • Heat the oil in a kadai.
  • Chop the sausage into four equal halves, insert a tooth pick from the bottom.
  • Gently roll the sausage in the batter, so that the sausage gets coated perfectly.
