slightly adapted from sanjeev kapoor's recipe
I made paneer lollipop just four days back for my food column. I had seen this recipe in a tv show long back. The same proceedure of boiled potato, ginger garlic paste, onion, coriander leaves, grated paneer, cornflour, soya sauce, green chillies, pepper powder. made lollipop with baby corn and rolled in maida and deep fry. It was just awesome..
Hi every one
I made them by adding a little bit more paneer and i also added some cheese to the flour and some kentucky flour.
I used grated parmesan sheese
My friends really enjoyed them.
I served them with ketchup and green chatni
I havent tried it but I would say prepare the recipe until step 7 in advance. You can fry them before the guests arrive and keep it warm in a preheated/warm oven. --DK
Form the dough into lollipop step 7 and then refrigerate it.I am not sure how long its good kept this way cos I never keep prepped foods for more than a day in the fridge. Hence personally have no idea. --DK
I am sorry for the delay. Did not see it earlier. I haven't personally tried baking them hence dunno the exact details it entails, but I am sure you can bake them. I would skip the flour coating in that case. Probably apply some breadcrumb coating or a light coating of oil and bake for probably 15-20 minutes in a 350F oven. You would need to experiment around this to get it right...I will def. post my version when I try baking them next time.--DK
No its does not get deleted Priya, provided you had either a photo or a feedback or both. If there is neither, then it gets deleted
One of Chef in you facebook page fan suggested using pretzels. Or you can probably try icecream stick?!
Oh yes! whatever strikes your fancy and creative juices :) --DK
The only reason I can think is that the mixture was too dry. If it was then try adding some liquid (warm water) few trickles or oil so that the mixture is more pliable. If too wet, add more paneer to the mixture. Hope this helps --DK
Oh yes you can replace it with some other cheese. Use a cheese which will not melt all over the oil while frying. :) --DK
I am not sure of how long is freezing time for these. but you can do so after you shape them into drumsticks. And instead of chilling time as suggested you can refrigerate them longer. but as I said, I dunno how long it will keep well in a freezer and if the consistency and taste will be the same since I haven't personally tried it myself. --DK
You can easily make this Vegan by excluding the paneer. Just add in more potatoes to compensate for the paneer. That should be yummy too! I mean potatoes - whats not to like ;) You can also try adding TVP or Soy granules to the mixture. Soft soaked bread (in water and squeezed dry) would work too along with these potatoes :) Hope this helps --DK :)
You can surely boil them - I am just fanatic about steaming and do it more often than not. You can boil them as well. I personally think its not necessary. But if you really want to be sure - You can try something - In the same frying oil, try dropping one baby corn for testing. If it fries well and gets crunchy, then use the fresh baby corn. It should help...otherwise boil it v lightly along with potatoes. Hope this helps :) --DK
