Chicken poppers

Chicken poppers are an all-time favorite in my home. Serve it as a starter or as an evening snack, it is sure to win everybody's heart.. making them to long for more to be served :) We have loved it every time its been made at home. I make it as a bunch so that i can use some the next day for manchurian and chik balls curry. Its mostly the same way. Not a very lengthy process so love to make it to bring a smile on everybody's face. Will post recipes for manchurian and curry in a day or two
My 2 yr old too loves this and everytime i serve this he uses a toothpick to eat it .. naming it 'chicken lollipop' in his style :) now that is sure an appreciation that i love

Serves... 6 ppl
Serve option... Hot with hot sauce

This is what u'll need....

Chicken breasts or thighs 2 pieces
Egg 1
Hot sauce 1 tspn(optional)
Red chilli powder 1 tbspn
Cumin powder 1 tspn
Gg paste 1 tspn
Onion 1 medium
Green chillies 2
Corn flour 1-2 tbspn
Bread crumbs 3 tbspn
Coriander leaves handful
Salt to taste
Oil to fry the balls

Here is the stir....
  • Cut chicken meat into medium size pieces and grind it to a coarse paste. I leave a few little chunks to have a good texture
  • Heat a tspn oil in a pan and toss in chopped onions. Fry till they turn translucent. Add gg paste and cook till it lose the raw flavor
  • Transfer chicken and onion mixture to a bowl and add egg, salt, hot sauce, red chilli powder, cumin powder, corn flour, chopped green chillies, chopped coriander and bread crumbs
  • Mix everything together to form a doughy consistency and keep aside
  • Make small balls and keep them ready for frying. Sometimes i roll them again in bread crumbs for an extra crunch. But they taste good either way
  • Heat a skillet and add 2 tbpsn of oil to it. Place all the balls and cook till they are a dark brown shade. Flip them over and cook on the other side till done
  • Serve hot hot with your favorite chilli sauce for a delicious appetizer/snack
