Chicken Lollypops Coated with Gram Daal

I have always wondered that what is the secret ingredient that KFC uses which makes those chicken wings so delicious and crunchy. I have always thought of various coating which will make the surface of chicken wings crunchy. But this one recipe came out as the best of the lot. The chana daal coating makes this kebab truly delicious and when you will bite the kebab , you can hear a nice munching sound (which was my ultimate make it as crunchy as possible).

Ingredients :

1. Chicken wings or lollypops- 6 to 7
2. Curd (hung for 15 minutes)- 3 large tbs
3. Red chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
4. Salt to taste
5. Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
6. Ginger-garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
7. Turmeric powder- one pinch
8. Cumin powder (Jeera powder)- 1/4 tsp
9. Olive oil
10. Beaten egg- 1
11. Parsley (finely chopped)- 1/2 tsp
12. Chana daal- 1 cup
13. Bread crumb- 1/2 cup

For decoration :

1. Curd- 2 tbs
2. Vinegar- 1 tsp
3. Black pepper powder- 1/4 tsp
4. Sweet corn , tomato- 1/4 cup

Procedure :

First grind the dry chana daal in mixer and keep it aside. Marinate the chicken pieces with curd , chilly , pepper , salt , garlic-ginger paste , turmeric and cumin powder. Keep the marinated chicken in refrigerator for 1 hour covered with a cling film. 

In a bowl mix the curd (kept for decoration) , vinegar and pepper and refrigerate it .
Mix the chopped parsley in the beaten egg and keep it aside.
Mix the powdered chana daal and bread crumb and add a little salt to it. Heat olive oil in a flat surface pan. Now dip the chicken pieces in the beaten egg and then roll in the chana daal mixture properly , so that the pieces evenly get coated with the chana mixture. 

Now shallow fry them in the pan over low flame (so that the chicken inside gets cooked properly). Let the chicken pieces turn brown in color.
After frying keep them on a paper napkin to remove excess oil. Meanwhile saute the tomato and sweet corn in the remaining oil of the pan. 

Now put the pieces in the plate and add the corn and tomato on top of it. You can also add a little green chutney and saunth to it. Serve it immediately with the curd mixture.

  2. Dear Khushi
    Very nice recipe. Even if I dont eat chicken generally, but I am tempted to try this one. I tried the chicken in cheese sauce, it was good, but I have made some mistake ..which I know. So will give more tries. Thank God the butter fried bread was nice to eat.ha ha

    The Bancake ( nice name) , is very new for me. Cant believe it can be cut into nice cubes. I love Banana ( Dont like fruits as such except mango and banana , the calorie ones.)
