Quick Review Of Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets
Price and packaging – Amul Happy Treats are packaged well. These Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets come in a resealable plastic bag. Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets come with a premade green chutney. A 300 gram pack of this frozen food contains approximately 15 pieces and is priced at Rs 160/-.
Appearance – We could see the Amul Happy Treats were triangular in shape. The Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets have a thick orange-colored covering.
How we made it – We followed the instructions given on the back of the pack. These masala nuggets can be cooked using the deep frying method. Like most frozen food snacks, Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets were not required to be thawed. We pre-heated the oil in a wok and added the paneer nuggets one by one. After 3-4 minutes, when we noticed the nuggets looked crisp and had an identical golden color, we took them out on a plate. We deep-fried them using regular vegetable oil.
Texture – The very first bite of the Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets, and we could tell instantly that these Happy Treats will disappear in the blink of an eye! The outer cover had a pronounced crunch, thanks to the bread crumbs used. The crumbled paneer center felt very fresh, and it wasn’t too crumbly or hard. It has the perfect malai-like paneer one would find at the local dairy.
Taste – We expected paneer, we got paneer! The balance between the paneer and the batter was spot on. In these Amul Happy Treats, we could taste tiny bits of onions along with paneer. This added an extra crunch! The mixed spices and condiments used in the Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets added an exceptional flavor. The paneer nuggets were not too spicy or too bland; they were well seasoned. The paneer used in these Amul Happy Treats tasted very fresh.
The vegetarian section of the frozen food aisle is flooded with potato based snacks, but we seldom come across a paneer based ready-to-cook snack. So on that aspect, this was definitely a nice change. For comparison, we can say the Amul Masala Paneer Nuggets tasted a lot like homemade paneer cutlets. The same goes for the mint chutney that comes with the pack. The coriander and mint added a refreshing flavor to the masala paneer nuggets. Amul Happy Treats are a great flavorful snack option to go with your evening tea or can be served as a starter during parties. However, these frozen paneer nuggets may not be enjoyed by kids as much as the green chili can get a bit too much for them.
