Crispy Nuggets with a piping hot cup of tea is the ultimate combo one could enjoy during monsoons. With just a handful of ingredients like poha, potato, onion, capsicum, peas and a handful of spices, you can easily make some delicious nuggets at home. No need to deep-fry and make the snack extra-oily, as these nuggets can be prepared with just 2 tbsp of Purti Refined Palmolein Oil. To make the nuggets crispier, we have dipped them in a cornflour slurry and coated them in breadcrumbs. If you don’t have breadcrumbs, you can skip this step as well. To add a touch of cheesiness to the nuggets, stuff a small piece of cheese in the nuggets before frying them. Pair up the nuggets with tomato ketchup and mint chutney to make them wholesome.
