My planning was quite effective, since I knew every step on the day I cooked this dish. Even though my planning was helpful, some practise still was needed since my partner and I burnt the nuggets. The skills needed for this dish, are being able to measure the ingredients, beating the eggs, cutting and timing.
The appearance of the dish was not as appealing as I expected. It was quite burnt, making the outside brown. To my surprise, the taste of the dish was, in fact, bland and tasteless. The texture of the nuggets was very satisfying. It was crispy on the outside, while the inside was soft and had the right amount of chewiness.
The rating I would give this dish for its nutrition is a 7/10 and the cost rating is a 7/10. If I were to do this dish ag…
