Now a days chicken lollypops you can get it done at the store, however you can easily do it at home. It is one of the famous street food across India. I have made using a fusion of Indian and Chinese flavors. So you need both garam masala powder and sauces on hand. It can be prepared in different ways, sometimes I use chicken drumsticks too and coated with spices, bread crumbs to give it a certain crunchiness. I will post that recipe also in coming weeks.

Tips- The below mentioned quantity of chicken lollipops with the chilly powder give moderately spicy. The combination of cornstarch balances out the spice. You can add more or reduce the quantity of chilies and black pepper according to your spice level. I have used here kashmiri chilies too that is low on spice but lend a beautiful red color, this eliminates the need to use any food colouring. One more tip which I am going to share is, wrap your bone part of the lollipop with aluminum foil so the overall presentation looks great, plus it’s cleaner to just hold it on the hand. Sauces are already salty, so add salt in the sauce mixture after a salt check only.

Heat a pan with required oil, when the oil is enough hot, fry them on medium flame until cooked. Do not fry on a very high flame as it may brown the chicken outside without cooking inside. Even you can deep fry the chicken pieces, I have done shallow fry, so one side is done flip it and cook the other side.
