Potato Pops Video. Unique presentation and fabulous flavour make the Potato Pops a great hit with people of all age groups, whether you serve it as a starter, as a cocktail accompaniment or as an after-school snack! ‘Pops’ or tiny tikkis are made with mashed, spiced potatoes and stuffed with cheese, before attaching a breadstick ‘handle’ to each pop! This lovely tidbit is then cooked on a tava till it is crisp on all sides. The outcome is a five-starrer, which attracts everyone with its dainty appearance and peppy flavour.
