Chicken Sausage Lollipops




Chicken Sausage Lollipops is one of the most interesting and yummylicious dishes for after school snacks or even back to home snack. A perfect snack to munch for tea time.

I was wondering what I'd prepare for my kids when they get back from school and found a packet of sausages lying in the fridge. So I thought I'd deep fry them in a batter with a toothpick inserted inside to hold and make it more comfortable for kids to munch. Voila! Chicken Sausage Lollipops to the rescue.


Chicken Sausage – 8 nos

Corn meal /Maize flour – ½ cup

Chilli powder – ½ tsp

Garam Masala – ¼ tsp

Salt to taste

Black pepper powder – ¼ tsp

Egg – 1 no

Oil for deep frying


1.Take the corn meal, chilli powder, garam masala, black pepper powder in a bowl. Mix all these together.

2.Pour in ¼ cup of water little by little and mix them well (be sure no lumps should be formed).

3. Break in the egg and mix them well with the batter, let it rest for 5 mins (the batter should be little thick, so that it can coat the sausage).

4. Heat the oil in a kadai.

5. Chop the sausage into four equal halves, insert a tooth pick from the bottom.

6. Gently roll the sausage in the batter, so that the sausage gets coated perfectly.

7. Gently drop it to the oil and deep fry them for 3 to 4 mins or until it turns golden brown.

8. Drain the oil and remove the sausage.

9. Serve hot with Mayonnaise and Tomato Ketchup.
