2 tbsp cornflour
5 tbsp plain flour (maida)
3 to 4 clove of garlic (lehsun) , finely chopped
1 slit green chilli , finely chopped

For The Sauce
1 tbsp garlic (lehsun) , finely chopped

Method
For the vegetable balls

  1. Combine the cabbage, carrots, onions, cornflour, plain flour, garlic, green chilli, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Shape spoonfuls of the mixture into small balls. If you find it difficult to form balls, sprinkle a little water to bind the mixture.
  3. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.

For the sauce

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan on a high flame. Add the garlic, green chillies and ginger and stir fry over a high flame for a few seconds.
  2. Add the stock, soya sauce, cornflour paste, sugar and salt and simmer for a few minutes.

How to serve

  1. Just before serving, put the vegetable balls in the sauce and bring to a boil.
  2. Serve hot.

Tips
  1. Add some water or vegetable stock to thin down the sauce if it is too thick.
