Chinese Vegetable Lollipops

BM # 48   Week 4  Day 3

For Day 3 under Naashta theme, I have some fried vegetable lollipops. These are crisp, crunchy and spicy. Serving them with garlic sauce enhances the flavor. This is very close to vegetable manchurian, with a slight variation. Here we add schezwan sauce which changes the flavor and makes it nice and spicy. A little food color has been added to these, but you can surely skip it . 

While making these just make sure that the batter for these is not runny or hard, and while binding these just wet your hands to get those perfect rounds. These should always be relished right away, piping hot. The taste and texture both change after a while .So serve these as soon as you fry. If you do not want to fry, go ahead and use your appam pan.
