A Chicken Lollipop is a classic Indo-Chinese fusion enjoyed by Indians of every class! You get this spicy red coloured fried chicken wings at elite restaurants, as well as the local chinese carts. Ofcourse the taste and method varies slightly,nevertheless, it still remains delicious and appealing for adults and children. Chicken lollipop is a method of preparing chicken wing ,wherein the meat from the segments is scraped at the end of the wing bone,in such a way that it resembles a lollipop. The meat is marinated in chinese seasonings and sauces and fried in a batter of eggs and flour.Its served with sichuan sauce as dipping sauce,or can be tossed in a spicy sauce for more flavouring. As a kid, I loved indulging in noodles ,fried rice and lollipops from local chinese restaurants or carts.The best part of ordering a chinese takeaway was the good quantity or portions that were packed in a single serving.That made it an affordable eat out or takeaway option! However we didnt have the luxury of overindulgence,considering we were 3 siblings and a family of 6 including my parents and grandmom. I was a die hard foodie by birth and I still remember,how I devoured those lollipops till the last morsel of meat on the bone! I can see myself when I see my toddler indulging in these homemade lollies and the Mom in me takes a satisfied sigh!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
