W/Salaam. Nuggets are normally best served freshly fried but you can fry and freeze, just make sure to allow them to cool sufficiently and wrap them well. When ready to serve, let the come to room temperature then bake them in the oven to warm them up and get the crust crisp again.

You can use flour seasoned with a bit of salt, pepper and a couple of pinches of baking powder. Mix well and use in place of breadcrumbs.

Thanks for the quick reply :)

Looks great..But i am short of breadcrumbs at the moment.. Is there any alternative for breadcrumbs ?! Thanks..

After dipping in egg and frying you can refrigerate for a few days or freeze for up to a month.

(Problem* sorry spelling mistake…)

can i refrigerate before frying?..after dipping in egg and rolling in to crumbs?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Sure you can, but do not refrigerate for longer than a few hours otherwise the crumbs will end up getting soggy and they will absorb too much oil during frying.

Can we refregerate? For how many days i can refregerate? Will there be any provlem coz in this recipe u have raw egg..

I have no soya sauce can i ommit it?

Yes you can, use vinegar in it's place.

Have never tried this recipe with minced chicken.


I wanted to know if we can freeze the nuggets or not and I just read the above comments and in that you said that we can fry the nuggets and then freeze them. Can we freeze them before frying, just as we buy frozen from the market?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, have personally never tried freezing the nuggets before frying but it should be fine. Just do not allow them to thaw, fry them directly from the freezer.

Ok, JazakAllah Khair!
