Kids Snacks and Easy Party Appetizers: How to Make Potato Lollipops
Potato Lollipops Are Scrumptious and Nutritious
Potato lollipops are a tasty and healthy snack or appetizer that is loved by children and adults alike.
Potato is the main ingredient in this snack. Boiled potatoes contain many essential nutrients, and they have a wonderfully smooth and silky texture as well.
This recipe is quick and easy to prepare; it took me only about 30 minutes. You can serve it with tomato sauce or a mayonnaise dip.
- 1 1/2 cups potatoes, boiled, peeled, mashed
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon chili flakes
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mango powder (amchur powder), or substitute 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
- 2 pinches turmeric powder (optional)
- 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
- salt to taste
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (maida)
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- oil for deep-frying
- Boil potatoes. Peel and mash them. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, add mashed potatoes, chopped onions, bread crumbs, chopped coriander leaves, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chili flakes, Italian seasonings, and salt. Mix together to form a firm dough. Set aside.
- In another bowl, add all-purpose flour and mix it with water to form a thick batter. Set aside.
- Pour the bread crumbs onto a plate.
- Divide the potato dough into many lemon-sized portions. Shape each portion into a ball. Dip each ball into the all-purpose flour batter. Next, roll the balls in the bread crumbs.
- Deep-fry the balls in moderately hot oil. Fry until they become golden brown and crispy.
- After each ball is finished cooking, transfer it onto an absorbent paper towel. Insert a toothpick in each ball to make it look like a lollipop.
- Serve with tomato sauce or mayonnaise dip. Enjoy the taste!
