Veg Nuggets

Veg nuggets are crunchy from the outside, flavorful from the inside. You can serve them during parties. The best thing about these nuggets is you can make them, crumb coat them and freeze them beforehand and fry them later when your guests arrive! You can use sweet corn and another choice of veggies in making these nuggets. Here for coating the nuggets I have used corn flakes crumbs, you can also replace them with dry bread crumbs or pressed rice  (poha) crumbs. You are free to adjust the seasonings. You can also Indianise by adding Indian spices. This is easy to make and delish too. so let's start making vegetarian nuggets!!!

After sauteing, let the mixture cool down, transfer into a mixing bowl. To the sauteed mixture add the mashed potato, and all the ingredients except oil which is for deep frying, cornflour dissolved in water, and cornflake crumbs.

After mixing everything, take a tablespoon of the veggie mixture and give it a nugget shape.
