->Take grated carrot and cabbage in a bowl and add salt. Leave aside for 5 minutes and then squeeze water out till the last drop.
-> Mix salt, black pepper powder, soya sauce, corn flour and all-purpose flour (you can adjust the amount of all-purpose flour to get the proper binding).
-> Make small balls of the mixture/dough.
-> Now heat up oil in a wok and fry these balls till golden brown.
-> Take them out on a tissue paper to remove excess oil.
-> Now heat up oil in a pan.
-> Add garlic & green chilli to it. Give it a toss (we don’t want the garlic to turn brown).
-> Add capsicum. Cook it at high flame for 2-3 minutes.
-> Now add spring onion.
-> Add 1 cup of water to it along with salt and soya sauce.
-> Now in a bowl take 1 tbsp of cornflour and about 2-3 tbsp of water. Mix it well.
-> Start adding the mixture to the pan little amount at a time till you get the right consistency of the gravy.
-> Add sugar and tomato ketchup to it and give it a boil.
-> Add balls to the gravy and give it another boil.
-> Switch off the stove.
-> Cover the pan with a lid for 10 minutes so that the balls absorb the gravy properly.

Serve it with fried rice, noodles or whatever you’d like with it! 🙂
