KFC’s Veg strips with Veg Rice Bowlz & Potato burgers/Krisper is my daughter Raksha’s favourite restaurant food now.Yeah,we have become a regular customer of (Bangalore) Kathriguppe KFC in weekendsDrooling.Thanks to my friend Megha for telling me about the veggie options in KFC.Earlier we were thinking it is only for non-vegetarians.So we have never gone inside it and i was throwing out all the KFC discount coupons i was getting along with sodexo meal passNot talking.Once Megha told me about Veg Rice Bowlz and Veggie burger varieties of KFC and suggested me try once.We went in the same weekend and now we have become an ardent fans of those dishes.More than me Sendhil & Raksha have become crazy for its taste and they are ready to go there anytime of the day.U won’t believe if i say that we have visited KFC nearly 6-7 times in past two monthsWinking.And nowadays Raksha started demanding me to try KFC’s recipes at home too.When i was browsing for the same,i got some ideas from facebook’s Chef at large group posted by some members.I collected all those recipes & googled few more too.Inspired by all the pictures and recipes,i tried veg strips for the first time last week and i was  very happy with the results.It was sooo crispy and Raksha loved it a lot with tomato ketchup.I won’t say its the exact replica of KFC’s original recipe(hope u know its a secret recipe) but i am sure it tastes pretty close and your family will enjoy it for sure.
Today being children’s day,i wanted to treat my daughter with her favourite finger food.So I made this again along with one minute brownie & kept it for her surprisingly.After coming from the school,when i gave this snacks to her,she showed a big smile and hugged me tightlyBig Hug.She tasted and said “Wow,mummy its awesome” and she had 5 of themLaughing.
The procedure may seem lengthy as i made bread crumbs & chilli flakes at home.If u have store bought bread crumbs & chilli flakes in hand, u can finish the entire process within 30 minutes,Also u can make everything well advanced and just deep fry during serving time.So just try this for your kids birthday party & get together or simply as evening snack.They will enjoy this dish thoroughly.But one thing,serve it hot to enjoy its full flavor,taste & crispness.So don’t forget to serve & eat hot !!
Here is the picture of KFC Veg Rice bowlz with veg strips i tried on last weekend.Here i used coarsely ground corn flakes to give KFC chicken lookWinking.But today i used finely powdered corn flakes.So make it as per your wish.It tastes Sooo Good in either ways Smile.Soon i will post Veg rice bowlz with curry recipe.

NOTE: KFC's veg strips tastes less spicy with very mild masala flavour.So i too followed the same here.Please add garam masala powder,aamchur powder or chat masala powder if u want strong masala smell.

Hi can I freeze them ?? Can you help me out how ??

Chitra said...

Shikha Lalwani, make the dough, dip in maida & bread crumbs. Store in a ziplock cover, freeze it. Remove & thaw ( bring to room temperature) the strips before deep frying. Do another coating of maida & bread crumbs and fry immediately. Hope my reply is clear.
