Mother’s are always in the look out for something healthy and filling to give to their kids after school. This Babycorn Lolipop is a healthy, and easy snack option for kids. It is easy to make,can be made ahead and heated before serving.

In this recipe, tender Babycorn is steamed and marinated in a spicy and tangy marinade, and then grilled over a Tava. The dish is finished in an oven with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, which makes kids favorite.

Though I have suggested this as kids snack, adults will love them too, and that’s why they double up as party starters.

How to Pick Babycorn for this recipe- Pick tender ones which you are able to bend. The cobs should be thin and not fat.

Why I recommend Olive Oil in this recipe- Olive Oil imparts a nice flavor. Use classic Olive oil ( all purpose one), and not Extra Virgin oil.

What can Olive Oil be Substituted with- it was be easily Substituted with melted butter. Remember to use only little salt, if using butter.

Why you should try this recipe, is because it is very easy. Can be made ahead, while kids are at school and heated just before serving. To heat, microwave for 20 seconds.

Steam the Babycorn in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes ( without whistle) , or alternatively put them in a Microwaveable safe dish, add adequate water and salt and microwave on high for 7-8 minutes. Then drain all water and set aside.

For the Marinade, combine the Red chilli powder, Salt, oil and celery and mix well. Squeeze the juice of the lemon and mix again. Apply this Marinade over the Babycorn and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Now, insert Skeewer sticks to the base of the Babycorn, right at the center.

Now put the butter on a hot Tava and let it melt. Spread the butter all over the Tava. Now arrange the Babycorn on the Tava and grill the Babycorn until lightly charred ( brown). Keep turning the skeewer sticks, so that they char evenly.

Now transfer the grilled Babycorn to a greased baking tray. Bake at 180 C in a pre heated oven for 20 minutes until crisp and the cheese melts. Remove from the oven and serve warm with Mayo and Ketchup.
