1. Begin with finely chopping assorted veggies – 1 small carrot, half green bell pepper, one-third cabbage, 2 green beans.

3. Shape the mixture into small round balls and set aside.
4. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Fry these balls until they are golden brown. Drain the excess oil and keep them aside.
5. Now make the sauce. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a pan, add finely chopped ginger and garlic along with half a sliced onion. Sauté till they become slightly golden brown.
6. Add 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon cornflour mixed with water, and stir well.
7. You may add Spring onions and green chillies too but it’s optional as its not common in all Indian kitchens. If you want to make it spicier, add chilli sauce.
8. Simmer until the sauce thickens, add the vegetable balls and toss them gently until they are well coated with the sauce.
9. Garnish with chopped spring onions or coriander leaves.
