Before we go to today’s post, reminding all my readers on the Strawberry Desserts & Giveaway event that ends 31st October– Do rush in your yummilicious entries (archives also accepted when linked) . Also check out my 100-day Global Food Fest and link in your entries.
Day 5 of Blogging Marathon sees me dishing out one of our family favourites – Schezwan Dill Corn Lollipops. Quick to make and easy to serve, its a great dish to whip out for kiddo parties and potlucks alike ! Yes, agreed it is deep fried, but indulgence is good sometimes, or so my daughter says when she chomped it last evening after what seemed like hours playing outside..Like the Healthy Carrot Bonda, I wanted to use the paniyaram pan to fry this, but gave it a miss and deep fried it instead. You can make the lollipops way ahead of time and refrigerate it, and fry it just before serving. Let’s get cracking on this..
Sending this to Blogging Marathon Day 5 along with Manjula’s Appetiser event and my event – 100 day Global Food festival. Check out my fellow marathoners.
