Chicken Sausage Lollipops

Standard

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…

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Sausage – 8 nos
  • Corn meal /Maize flour – ½ cup
  • Chilli powder – ½ tsp
  • Garam Masala – ¼ tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper powder – ¼ tsp
  • Egg – 1 no
  • Oil for deep frying

Preparation:

  • 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.
  • Gently drop it to the oil and deep fry them for 3 to 4 mins or until it turns golden brown.
  • Drain the oil and remove the sausage.

Serve hot with Mayonnaise and Tomato Ketchup.

Jack Fruit Pancake Balls

Standard

Nowadays I feel my works getting more and more tighten, as the kids grew up with the stuffs like their home works and their naughtiness (must to mention). When both of them are back from school, these kids have a sweet tooth and want something for their snack – mainly focused on sweets or bakes.

I thought of preparing pancake with jack fruit, but my daughter asked me why don’t you prepare pancake in appe pan (kuzhipaniyaram kadai), it would be easy for me hold and eat. This resulted in the making of Jackfruit Pancake balls – an after school or back to home snack.

It was too soft and fluffy. Give a try not only for kids but also for the people from work would enjoy having this. I felt it just like munch when they move here and there all over the house. Let me share the recipe…
