Once you decide to do anything which involves deep fry first you keep the oil for heating on medium heat.So that by the time we complete the preparations oil will be hot enough to fry.Wash all the vegetables and grate cabbage and carrot,finely chop french beans, spring onions and garlic.Cut onion and capsicum into cube chunks and set aside.Take cabbage,carrot and beans and sprinkle some salt and keep aside for 5 minutes so that we can squeeze out all water from it.
Use the squeezed water to prepare a thick paste(keep it thick as it gets diluted once you add veggies) of cornflour,maida,1 tsp ginger garlic paste, red chilly powder,ajinomotta,2 drops of soy sauce( i do this to get color) and very little salt. Now mix the grated vegetable mixture to the above corn-maida paste.Make small balls out of it.
By now oil will be ready and we can deep fry these vegetable balls till we get golden brown color Now take a pan ,put 1Tsp oil add GG paste ,garlic bits,onions, spring onion white finely chopped and fry on high heat add capsicum saute for a minute and add fried vegetable balls and all the sauces mix it well.Finally add chopped spring onions and serve hot 🙂
