Things You'll Need

  • 2 cups finely chopped & minced vegetables (cabbage, carrot, capsicum, French beans)

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Salt to taste



Mix finely chopped minced vegetables with salt to taste, and ¼ tsp. each of red chilli powder, ginger paste and garlic paste. Bind this mixture with some cornflour and shape into small balls. Shallow fry the balls on a non-stick pan till golden brown. Keep aside.

Add vegetable balls and Soya sauce. Boil for two more minutes and remove from heat. Serve hot preferably with hakka noodles and vegetable fried rice.
