Oil for frying
¼CupSpring onion(White parts)
¼CupGreen bell pepper
White Sesame seeds
Finely Chop cabbage, carrots and spring onion. You can use food processor or grater for fine consistent chopping.
Next mix all chopped vegetables in a bowl. Add salt and pepper and gradually mix flour into the vegetables.
Mix making sure everything is well combined, then take a small portion of the mixture in your hands and form balls.
In a pan heat oil and gently place the balls in the hot oil. The oil has to be medium hot. Stir occasionally, until the balls turn golden brown. Fry the balls till crisp and golden.
For gravy heat a tablespoon of oil in pan and add white part of spring onions, chopped garlic, chopped ginger and fry until soft.
Add soy sauce, tomatoes ketchup, chili sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well and cook for a minute. Next add cubed onions and bell pepper. Sauté for a minute and add water and bring to boil.
Meanwhile In another small bowl take 1 tablespoon corn starch and 2 tablespoons water. Mix very well and keep aside.
Add corn flour paste into the gravy mixture, make sure you are stirring continuously so it wont form any lumps.
Let it simmer until the sauce thickens and you see a glaze on it. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes on a medium flame. If the sauce is too thick, you can add some warm water or If it is too thin then you can add some more corn starch.
Turn off the heat and add vegetable balls just before serving. Garnish with some more spring onions, red chilies and sesame seeds.
You can serve it with plain white rice or rice noodles. ENJOY.
Make sure your veggies are chopped in the same size for achieving a uniform texture of the balls.
Do not add a lot of flour to the veggies, instead slightly squeeze the moisture out of veggies so they won't get a lot of flour in them.
You can add a tablespoon of bread crumbs to the balls mixture to make them more crispy.
Grease your hands before forming the balls, as the mixture will be slightly sticky.
If you are using vegetable stock instead of water for gravy make sure you adjust the salt accordingly.
