Chicken lollipops is a very popular street food in Indian Chinese cuisine . It is usually served with Szechuan as well as Sweet Chili Garlic Sauce.
These scrumptious Chicken lollipops are made from the middle and inner segments of chicken wings. The middle segment has one of the two bones removed, and the flesh on the segments is pushed to one end of the bone. These are then coated in a spicy red batter and deep fried. This dish can be found at all Indian-Chinese restaurants & is so simple, yet so delicious . Kids and adults favor this delicacy alike.
