Here’s a link How to make chicken lollipops, that can teach you how to get lollipops or drumettes out of chicken wings (if you can’t get them made at any meat shop, I got mine made from Jalal Son’s main-market) Honestly, I couldn’t have explained better.
These drumettes freeze well as well.
|Red Chili Powder||2 tsp|
|Garlic paste||1 tsp|
|Mustard Paste||1 tbsp|
|Roasted cumin powder (zeera)||2 tsp|
|Oregano powder||1/2 tsp|
|Black pepper powder||1/2 tsp|
|Egg||1, for coating|
|Corn flour||for coating|
|Oil||for deep frying|
- Marinate your chicken lollipop drumsticks or drumettes in mustard paste, cumin powder, red chili powder, oregano powder, black pepper powder, salt, garlic paste and vinegar.
- Prick the chicken with fork for the flavours to seep deep into the meat but, don’t over do it, please.
- You can even freeze your chicken drumettes at this point and then continue when you wanna fry them.
- Coat each lollipop in corn flour first.
- Then carefully coat it in egg.
- Now coat it either in all-purpose flour or breadcrumbs, as you please. You’ll get a light crispy coating over chicken lollipop drumsticks if you coat them in all-purpose flour. While the breadcrumbs coating will be a wee bit heavier but more crunchier, so the choice is yours, as always 😀
