Chicken and prawn poppers was an experimental recipe which somehow surprisingly turned out yummy. I would call this dish a mix between chicken popcorn and nuggets.
people always keep writing to me and keep asking me if they do not have soya sauce, lime juice or chilly sauce what can be replaced. I cannot replace the ingredient but we can surely try and incorporate new ingredient if it turns out good then its our sheer luck.
Few ingredients that you may not have in hand and want to replace that ingredient would be lime juice...instead of lime I always use vinegar or yogurt you can also add fish sauce or soya sauce. If you dont have soya leave it out. chilly sauce always enhances the taste of such dishes do reduce the chilly and add chilly sauce if you like the taste.
