  • 500 grams Chicken lollipop
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic paste
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Cornflour
  • 2 tbsp All purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Rice flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Ginger paste
  • Oil for frying


  • Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, tomato ketchup, red chilli powder, garlic paste, salt in a bowl and toss the chicken lollipops in it. Marinade for half an hour.
  • In the same bowl, add cornflour, all purpose flour, rice flour, egg and ginger paste and mix well to create a thick batter and coat the lollipops in it.
  • Heat about two inches oil in a wok or kadhai to 350F/ 176C. Add the battered lollipops one by one to the oil in such a way that the meat is at the bottom and the bone is on top (watch the video to see how I do it). Fry these on medium high heat till golden brown - approx 3-4 minutes.
  • Take these out on a tissue paper to blot out any excess oil and serve hot with schezwan sauce.



Cutting chicken lollipop: Chicken lollipops are prepared using the middle segment of the chicken wing. You can watch this video to learn how to do this at home or just buy them pre-prepared from the store.
Make these in advance: You can also make these ahead by frying them once and storing them for a couple of hours. When ready to serve, heat the oil to about 400F/204C and flash fry the lollipops for the second time for just a minute. This will give it a super crispy coating and you'll have hot chicken lollipops ready to go.
