Searching for Baby Corn Lollipop creator....
Long time ago while going through the numerous blogs that link across the many blogs that I browse I hit upon a picture that I loved. Later I tried to look for it again but was unable to find. Google too did not co-operate. This recipe is inspired from the picture I had seen. I don't remember the original so made something of my own. If BCL creator is reading this please link up.
I loved them. They can be amazing starters for a party. The flavours are mild and the herbs make it fragrant. I guess this will be one hit recipe if you try it just once. This recipe lends itself well for a mass preparation.
Here is a thali of all the ingredients that I used.
- 8 baby corns
- 6 potatoes medium sized
- 1/2 cup grated carrot
- 1/2 cup fine chopped onion
- handful cilantro chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon dry basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon asafoetida
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon green chili sauce
- 1 teaspoon red chili powder
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs (I did not use but its a must)
In a big bowl mix all ingredients. I did not use bread crumbs but learnt that adding bread crumbs would have been a good idea as a binder. On each baby corn cob paste up the potato mixture to get a lollipop. Like seen here. Line them up in a greased tray. Bake on highest temp for 20 mins or till golden and crisp.
Serve hot with mayonnaise or sauce of your choice but definitely not ketchup! I used eggless mayonnaise. Do let me know if you like it. Also link me up if you have seen something similar elsewhere as I am looking for the Creator of this dish.
