  • 100 gm Broccoli grated
  • 100 gm Peas crushed
  • 70 gm Soy nuggets TVP soaked and crushed
  • 1 cup Bread crumbs
  • 50 gm Cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped
  • 3 tablespoon Walnuts chopped
  • 1 Green chillis chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper powder

  • In a large mixing bowl add boiled potatoes, grated broccoli, crushed peas, crushed and soaked soya nuggets, bread crumbs, coriander leaves, green chillies, walnuts, salt pepper and mixed herbs seasoning.
  • Mix them and combine them well using your hands and make a soft dough.
  • Now take a small portion of veg nugget mixture and shape it into square or round.
  • Similarly make approximately 12 nuggets out of this total mixture.
  • Brush the nuggets with oil.
  • Preheat the air fryer at 150C for 3 minutes.
  • Place these veggie nuggets in a single layer in air fryer basket and air fry at 200C for 7-8 minutes.
  • Turn them over once in-between.
  • Your air fried crispy veggie nuggets are ready.
  • Serve them hot with tomato ketchup or hot chilli sauce.



  • While selecting vegetables for the nuggets, cutlets or such snacks avoid vegetables with high water content as this will make them soggy.
  • Pre heating the oven if you are making baked version or Air fryer if you are making Air fried version is a MUST.
  • Try to consume them hot straight out of air fryer because when cold they tend to become soggy.
