Veg Lollipops

Veg Lollipop is an Indo-Chinese party snack. It can also be called as finger food. It combines a number of vegetables with a base flavour of garlic and ginger that gives it a Chinese style taste. As it uses many vegetables, the unique point of this recipe is that one can incorporate any vegetable of choice. Potato is the major ingredient as it is also the binding agent and cabbage is the second most important addition as it gives these lollipops their unique taste and flavour. One can then go ahead and add cauliflower, french beans, carrots, peas, beetroots etc. Lastly, the crunchy exterior is what makes it even more irresistible.
