For Veg Balls

1/4 cup carrot,grated
1 medium sized onion finely chopped
1/4 cup beans
1 tbsp Maida
1/3 tsp pepper powder
1 tsp Cornflour

Salt as Needed.

For gravy:

1 medium sized onion, diced
3-4 garlic cloves,finely chopped
1 tsp green chilly,finely chopped(optional)
1 green bell peppers
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp Tomato sauce
1 tsp vinegar
A pinch Ajanamoto
1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 1/2 cup of water
1/2 tsp Sugar

Salt as needed


Lets prepare the Veg balls:

    Add the cabbage/cauliflower,carrots,onions,beans in a large mixing bowl.

                        Add cornflour,Maida,pepper powder and salt.

Mix them well,no need to add water because it leaves water after adding the salt.So just mix them.

          Take a spoon of mixture and make small balls using your hand.

Now heat the Paniyaram Pan and Sprinkle little oil in it,drop the balls in the pan and fry them.

Cover and cook for few minutes.So that the vegetables inside the balls also cook well.

If you want you can deep fry the balls in oil.Turn the other side and cook well,till golden brown.

                             Here is the vegetable balls are ready.

Lets Prepare the  sauce:

Heat the oil in a wok and add the garlic,onion and toss them for few minutes.

                    Add the Sauces,sugar,salt,vinegar and Ajanamoto 

Add the veg balls and Bell peppers,toss for few more minutes.Finally add the cornflour paste.Once the gravy becomes thick transfer it into the serving bowl.
