Introduction: Potato Kebab Lollipops
Kebabs are various cooked meat dishes, with their origins in Middle Eastern cuisine. Many variants are popular throughout Asia, and around the world. Although most kebab recipes include some kind of meat in it, there are still a lot of vegans out there.
In this Instructable, I'll show you the recipe for some tasty potato kebab lollipops. This is gonna be a treat for all the vegans out there. This is a great evening snack and best tasted when it's still hot !
Step 1: Ingredients
For this mouth watering snack, you'll need to include the following in your shopping cart:
- Green Chilies
- Bread Crumbs
- Corn Flour Slurry
- Ginger Garlic Paste
Step 2: Prep the Ingredients
The first and the most important thing to do is to prep all the ingredients before starting to cook. This is a pretty straight forward recipe once all the ingredients are ready.
Boil a few potatoes and mash them well in a bowl. Also chop down the beans and carrots into small pieces and boil them till they're soft enough.
Step 3: The Mixture
The next thing to do is to prepare the mixture that's going to be deep fried. Add the boiled vegetables in the bowl of the mashed potatoes and mix it well.
Add salt, Red Chili Powder and a Teaspoon of cumin seeds to it. Also add in about half a cup of bread crumbs to it and mix it well.
Step 4: Roll and Coat
Next part is the fun part. Take the mashed veggies and roughly make it into a rough sphere in your hands.
Now take small chunks from that sphere and roll them into small balls using your hands and keep them aside.
It's time now for coating the balls. Dip them in the corn flour slurry and then in bread crumbs. Make sure the balls are completely covered in bread crumbs.
Coating the kebab balls is a completely optional step, but this definitely adds a lot of crispiness to the lollipops when they're fried.
Step 5: Deep Fry Time
The next step is to deep fry the kebab balls. Heat some oil in a deep frying pan. Now dust off any extra bread crumbs sticking on to the balls and slowly drop them into oil and fry it until it turns golden yellow in color.
Once it's all fried properly, remove it out of the oil and drain out any excess oil from it by placing it on a paper napkin.
Step 6: It's Serving Time
After deep frying the balls, it can be savored directly, but what's a lollipop without a stick.
So now take a few tooth picks and gently fix them into each of the deep fried balls. Now top it up with some coriander leaves and also some chili flakes if you'd like.
Serve it while hot with some tomato ketchup or yogurt dip.
Bon Apetit !!
