Very easy to make and ideal to serve at parties, the potato nuggets is sure to please you with its succulent mouth-feel and pleasant cheesy flavour.

A mixture of mashed potatoes and cheese, flavoured elegantly with red chilli flakes, is shaped into potato nuggets and deep-fried to make this all-time favourite snack.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect potato nuggets. 1. It is very important for the potatoes to be dry and not have excessive moisture or else the aloo nuggets won’t be crispy. Also, mash them very well or just grate them. It should not have any lump or else the nuggets will break.

2. Do not fry at low temperature, otherwise the potato nuggets will break or absorb a lot of oil.

3. Make sure you refrigerate the potato nuggets mixture for at least half an hour before shaping it. Remove it from the fridge just when you are ready to roll and deep-fry the nuggets, otherwise it will become soft and difficult not only to roll but also to fry the aloo nuggets – the nuggets might break and the cheese might ooze out, causing a pretty mess. If you keep the mixture refrigerated till the time of cooking, it will be too easy!

Loved by kids and adults, the potato nuggets is a great starter to serve at any party!
