Crispy Chicken Nuggets with Hot Red CurryChicken nuggets are cooked in so many different forms across the world. And when blended with hot curry, they simply taste heavenly. Although I've served this recipe with rice, you can blend it with noodles too. If you prefer, you can slightly alter the seasoning ingredients to induce the local flavor. Kaffir lime leaves are added in the hot curry to balance the spicy flavor as well as to add the required zing. During the preparation phase, make sure you do not overcook the chicken nuggets else it may spoil the texture of the recipe. If you find the curry too hot to handle, you can reduce the number of red peppers replacing it with local herbs. Let's make this crispy, fiery and absolutely delicious chicken nuggets recipe.
