Bite sized finger foods are always a hit in any party, and if it is on a stick, it looks cool too. I had this scrumptious appetizer last week from an Iftar party at my sister in law’s place. I took one bite of it and I knew that this will be definitely coming in my blog.

All thanks to Shabana for this flawless recipe. She did contribute a loot to this blog, and those were perfect, no-fail recipes too and loved by all of you. For those who have missed it, check out this rich and creamy Umm-Ali, this decadent Layered Chocolate and Custard Pudding and also this delicious Chicken Kabsa.

These popsicles can be made into poppers too. For that make small round shaped balls, fry it and serve it with a toothpick. But since I already posted a Chicken Popper recipe before, I decided to change the shape of this and call it popsicles. 😉

These tasted very good with my favourite sweet chilli sauce, but you can serve this with ketchup or chilli garlic sauce too. Either way, these chicken popsicles are just so succulent, crispy, flavourful and such a treat to the entire family, including the picky eaters. Please do give this a try, I am very sure that you will give this a thumbs up. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 200 grams minced chicken
  • 1 medium sized onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • half a bunch of coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 1 tsp sweet chilli sauce/ red chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp cornflour dissolved in 3-4 tbsp water
  • Crushed cornflakes as for coating the popsicles
  • Oil for deep frying
NOTES:
 
  • Be careful when adding salt as the soya sauce will have salt in it.
  • You can make this into small balls too.
  • Make sure that the chicken mince doesn’t have water in it, i.e it should be pat dried.
  • The chicken mince mix would be a little loose and so sometimes it won’t stay on the stick making it difficult to dip in cornflour mix. That is why we are freezing it.
DIRECTIONS:
 
  1. FullSizeRender-1Combine all the ingredients from chicken till 1 tbsp cornflour (except the cornflour water and cornflakes crumbs) together in a bowl. Mix well.

  1. I tried this the day before. The filling was a little loose as you warned and couldnt shape it up like popsicles. So i made balls. Cornflakes gave it a crisp Tasted just like cheese balls. And also the inside wasnt properly cooked.. Besides that, amazing

    1. Oops I guess you had a few problems with this. In shaa Allah hope you will get it right the next time. The inside will get cooked too if you cook on medium low heat for 10-15 minutes. Please do try again.
