paneer lollipops

 First day of the week ,Monday and what a lovely start, having a girls lunch potluck party at  one of my friends place,it was wonderful break after a long time with all different and yummeist dishes right from the starters to main course and ofcourse the desserts.This time i had taken starters as in our earlier potlucks i had already made rice,indian bread and side dish varieties and so just thought of some good palatable starters which will suffice for our chilled autumn weather here and finally a day before i decided to make these paneer lollipos after browsing as i wanted something new and eye catching dish and ooh lala..i went gaga over these breath taking lollipos when i landed on DK'S blog.There is no need of introduction to our lovely lady of chefinyou.Earlier also i have tried few of her recipes which turned out fantastic and this time i was very cool as i knew if im making something from her blog it has to be super cool :) and my other starter was my mom in law's dry moong dal kachori which will be my next post :)..till then happy cooking and njoy these yummilicious savoury lollipops. 
ingredients :
2 large potatoes ( boiled & mashed )
2 cups paneer ( grated /crumpled )
1 onion finely chopped
3-4 green chillies chopped finely ( adjust according to your taste buds )
2 tsp red paprika pwd ( optional ,add only if you want little hot and chatpata taste)
2-3 cloves of garlic grated
1 small pc ginger peeled & grated
2 tbsp corriander leaves finely chopped
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
21/2 tbsp cornflour
salt to taste
1/4 cup plain flour/maida
1 canned baby corn spears (15-17 baby corns)
oil for deep frying
method :
Mix mashed potatoes,paneer,green chillies,ginger,onions ,corriander leaves,salt,garlic,cornflour,soy sauce,salt all together and make a stiff dough ( if the dough is soft add more cornflour or paneer and make a tight dough and if too tight then add few drops of water ,though i had to add 1 tsp of cornflour more then the actual amount given  ) and keep it aside,meanwhile remove the baby corn spears from the can and drain all the excess water out of it .Take a small portion of the potato filling and pierce into the broader end of the baby corn and give the shape like a drum stick and repeat the process on all the required baby corns.Refrigerate it for 20 mins , (though this step is optional but i did it as i had enough time in my hands and will definately helped in mainting the shape and consuming less oil while frying,if you are in hurry you can avoid refrigerating).Place the plain flour in a flat  plate and dust all the lollipops one by one evenly and tap them slightly with your hands to remove excess flour and deep fry in medium flame till completely and evenly browned all over.Drain on paper towels and serve hot and immediately with ketchup.
