1. Taste

On tasting Amul Cheese Poppons in our test kitchen, we found that the cheese-pops in Amul Cheese Poppons have been rolled into a very thin coating of breadcrumbs giving it a beautiful brown and thin crispy exterior.

Amul Cheese Poppons has a very cheesy filling inside. Paneer and Cheese are the main ingredients of the filling.

We also noticed tiny bits of capsicum and green coriander in Amul Cheese Poppons. Both these ingredients add fresh flavors and color to these round-shaped party snacks.

Green chillies further add another dimension to Amul Cheese Poppons.

Rich in dairy, with the use of both paneer and cheese, this snack is well seasoned with salt and some pepper.

Overall, Amul Cheese Poppons have a perfect balance of spices.

To be able to really enjoy these cheese pops, your spice tolerance level should be slightly above medium. Amul Cheese Poppons are packed with green chilies and peppers. For children, the heat level in the Amul Cheese Poppons would be considered a bit high.

Speaking of the texture, Amul Cheese Poppons have a perfectly breaded crispy exterior. The outer covering of the Amul Cheese Poppons is thin and light. The soft cheese mixture inside is well coated with crumbs and maintains an airy, softness. The amount of filling inside the pops is just apt and no empty pockets were seen.

No Indian starter is complete without a hari chutney, isn’t it?! Amul Cheese Poppons are accompanied by a minty green chutney. The aroma of the chutney is more minty followed by a bit of coriander aroma.

However, the freshness of a green chutney was definitely missing. Team Mishry members felt it would be better to enjoy this snack with homemade chutney made with fresh ingredients, instead of a ready-to-eat one. The flavor and freshness of the green chutney just do not do justice to the deliciousness of the cheese pops.

In fact, Amul Cheese Poppons is in itself bursting with a lot of flavor and can be enjoyed without the chutney too.

3. Crispiness

Perfectly crisp from the outside and soft and pillowy from the inside, Amul Cheese Poppons would be loved for the crunchiness. As you take a bite of the Amul Cheese Poppons, you will feel a crispy and crunchy bite.
