Mrs Martin.....Sorry, its my mistake that I hadn't mentioned the amount of chilies, but actually depends on your taste and the hotness of the vegetable. I guess 5-6 should do( though I like it to have more "bite") :-)


very delicious snack can u please give amount of chilly to be used thanks


Excellent! I tried this recipe and it came out very good. They looked and tasted like spicy and tangy chicken nuggets. They are perfect as appetizer or for just snacking. I will be definitely be making them again. Yummy!

I would like to add a refinement. Add sugar according to taste to the final mixture and boil and add the cornflour solution spoonfull by spoonfull and not at one go.
