Method : 

1. Add the chopped cabbage, capsicum, grated carrots, chopped ginger and garlic, pepper, salt to a clean big bowl. Give everything a good mix. After mixing ,the veggies will leave water, now add the maida and corn flour and knead it into a dough. (You can adjust the flours according to the moisture content in your veggies. Make sure you add enough, not more, so that flour does'nt dominate the veggies)
2. Now form small veggie balls. 
3. Deep fry these balls in the moderate oil until done. 

 

To Make The Manchurian Sauce :

Further procedure is to be done on the high flame.

1. To a wok, add oil, when the oil gets hot, add chopped ginger - garlic, chopped green chillies. Fry until they are slightly cooked. Now add the chopped onions and cook further until translucent.
2. Now, add soy sauce, green chilli sauce, tomato ketchup, red chilli sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper. Reduce the flame and cook this sauce for about a minute. Add the fried veggie balls to the sauce and stir well to coat all the balls. 
3. Switch off the flame and serve hot with spring onions as garnish on top. 


Enjoy! 


Notes : 
1. One can use the chopper or food processor for the veggies which gives fine texture to the veggie balls. You may need to stir fry the veggie mixture first to eliminate excess moisture content and continue the same procedure, 
2. Adding chopped ginger and garlic to the veggie ball mixture is optional.
3. If you want your balls to be crispy, double fry them and add the balls to the sauce just before serving them.
