Notes

Make sure the potato mixture you make should not have too much moisture in it. Otherwise while deep frying it may break in oil or will absorb the oil.
The oil should be hot otherwise the potato nuggets will soak the oil and it will become oily.
Do not overcrowd the oil while frying the potato nuggets.
The the consistency of the corn flour batter should be thin and free-flowing. Do not make a thick batter.

My Tips:

  1. While deep frying the potato nuggets in oil, do not put too many nuggets because it will reduce the temperature of the oil and potato nuggets will soak the oil.
  2. Also, after putting the nuggets in hot oil, do not try to flip it immediately as the potato nuggets may break in oil.
  3. Coating with breadcrumbs in important. It gives a crispy exterior to the veg nuggets. You can easily make breadcrumbs at home.
