Then add red chili powder, shredded cheese, cumin powder, chopped fresh coriander leaves, garam masala powder and salt in the mashed veggies, combine everything well.
Add 3 tablespoon of bread crumbs in this vegetable mixture, add more if you feel that mixture is too runny and will not hold its shape.
Take small portion of mixture and try shaping it into a nugget.
Make a slurry by combining corn flour with water.
Dip the nugget in this corn flour slurry and then coat with remaining bread crumbs. Keep it aside. Do the same process with complete veggie nuggets mixture.
Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add nuggets into it. Shallow fry the nuggets until they turn golden brown rom all sides.
Once done transfer them over absorbent paper to absorb excess oil.
