    For how many days can these nuggets stored in refrigerator. I want to send them for my kid in box.can I store the patty in fridge and just fry it in oil daily before he goes to school?

      Sovi, it is better to freeze them. Just lay them flat in a single layer in a plate. DO NOT stack them. Pop into the freezer and once they are frozen transfer onto a freezer safe bag and store for few months.
      You can just take as many as required when you need them and deep fry everyday for your kid. Hope this makes some sense. Happy Cooking :)
