Vegetable Lollipop

Not only size, but shape also matters!!! LOL...that's what I can say about my vegetable lollipops! Well It's nothing but simple vegetable chop , those I shaped like lollipops or more like ice candies. Obviously you can shift to your preferred shape..:)


  1. Beetroot 1 medium (peeled and diced in large chunks)
  2. Carrot 1 large (diced)
  3. Cauliflower few large florets
  4. Beans few
  5. Frozen green peas 1/2 cup (you can use fresh also)
  6. Potato 1 large (peeled and cut into halves)
  7. Onion 1 medium (chopped)
  8. Ginger & garlic mince 1 tea spoon each
  9. Coriander leaves 1 table spoon (chopped)
  10. Green chilli 1 table spoon (chopped)
  11. Bhaja moshla ** 1 and 1/2 table spoon
  12. Bread crumb (enough for coating)
  13. Egg 1 (lightly beaten) 
  14. Salt
  15. White oil
  16. Flat sticks (normally those are used in ice candies)

** dry roast cinnamon stick, coriander seed, cumin seed, Fenugreek seed and whole dry red chilli and ground them together to make bhaja moshla.

How to proceed:

  • Wash and boil vegetables (beetroot,carrot,cauliflower,beans,potato) with 1/2 tea spoon salt . Stain and mash them together with green peas. But do not smash it to smooth.
  • Heat 1 table spoon oil in a pan and fry chopped onion till soft and pink in color. Add minced ginger & garlic to it and fry till raw smell disappears. 

  • Add smashed vegetable and sauté for a while. Add bhaja moshla, coriander leaves and chillies to it. Mix it up. Turn off the heat.
  • Make small balls from this mix and shape them like an ice candy or lollipop inserting a stick into each. Do not worry if it is little sticky.
  • Roll them on bread crumb. 

  • Now dip these crumbed veg-candies into beaten egg and again roll over bread crumb. 

  • Heat oil in a deep-frying pan (enough oil to deep fry). And fry these cutlets over medium heat till they are crisp & golden-brown.

  • Enjoy with tomato/chilli sauce and salad.
