It takes very less time to prepare this recipe. You just have to bake the nuggets and then toss them with the sauce. This vegetarian snack recipe is light, simple and is made without oil/frying.

About The Oven:

Every oven is different. For this recipe, I have used 24-litre OTG (1500 Watt). If you are using a different oven then the cooking time will change depending upon the wattage.

About The Veggie Nuggets:

In this recipe, I have used McCain’s veggie nuggets. These are made with potato, carrot, capsicum and corn. You don’t need to thaw them before cooking. Just place them on the baking tray, in a single layer, and bake for a few minutes until they are crisp and golden. You can also deep fry or shallow fry these nuggets if you like.
