hey I am not a big chickenatarian...but these are beauties. Can be a part of a party menu...just one questions, Can these be broiled or baked in the oven instead of frying

Viji said...

Thanks Asha.Do try and give me the feed back.They r really delicious.

Viji said...

Thanks and welcome to my blog Bhags.Yah I prepare this usually for party and get togethers.They are really delicious if you deep fry it.I have tried baking it too,but the taste is not sooo yummy as when you deep fry it.SO I prefer to deep fry it(once in a while deep fried items are ok,i guess,especially for the parties,right?):-)

The chicken lollipop looks yummy! And I totally agree with you, these taste better deep fried than baked :)

Viji said...

Hey just a doubt.How do the chopped ginger and garlic stick to the chicken while frying? Won't it separate in the oil?? Do we need to grind them and add or just fine chopping as u said is enough?

Viji said...

Finely chopped ginger-garlic is fine for this recipe ,it will stick to the chicken with the help of egg,corn flour and maida.If u want to crush,that also will work.Thanks for visiting my blog and do try and give me the feed back.
