"Appetizers"- Vegetable Manchurian(Dry)

Indo-Chinese cooking is fun, tasty and one of my favorites. Back in Pune, there were always tons of street vendors selling this type of food.It used to be a 'to go' spot for youngsters. The food was tasty- really spicy- and probably nothing like the real 'Chinese' food!!!Actually many of the cooks at these stalls were 'Nepali' and not real 'Chinese'!! But they had successfully captured the 'Indian taste buds'!!

1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/2cup finely chopped carrots
1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tbsp chopped cilantro
2tbsp Soy Sauce
2tsp Maggie hot and sweet sauce
1/4tsp black pepper
1/4tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup finely sliced green peppers
1/4 cup sliced carrots
few broccoli crowns
1tsp sliced green chilies
2tbsp all purpose flour
1tbsp Corn flour

1) Mix together finely chopped cabbage, carrots, all purpose flour,corn flour,black pepper,1/2tsp ginger garlic paste, red pepper flakes, salt,1 tbsp soy sauce.
2) Add little water and make into thick batter( you should be able to make Manchurian  'balls' for frying)
3) Deep fry the balls till golden brown. Keep aside

4) Shallow fry sliced green peppers, carrots, broccoli, green chilies and remaining ginger garlic paste. Fry just for couple mins.The veggies should remain crisp.
5) Add the soy sauce, hot and sweet sauce, Manchurian balls and mix.
6) Garnish with Cilantro.
