2) Once beans are well soaked and slightly sprouted, put them into grinder. Add salt, green chili, ginger and garlic. Grind without adding water. We need coarse mixture. Mix in carrot, capsicum and cabbage.
3) Make 1 inch diameter balls. In a microwave, steam cook for 1 or two minutes. (Steam them into batches)
4) Heat oil (Tip) for frying. Deep fry steamed balls over medium heat. Poke the fried balls with a fork.

Then add tomato ketchup, soy sauce, chilli sauce, sugar and salt. Spread this vegetable mixture onto a serving plate.

6) Mix soy sauce, tomato ketchup, green chili sauce and salt. Add little water. Heat 1 tsp oil into a kadai. Add chopped garlic. Saute. Add this mixture to kadai. when the mixture is hot, add the fried balls and toss. Place them over vegetable bed.
Serve hot as an appetizer.

1) To make it more healthy, skip frying the balls. Instead just steam them little longer. Also, while making vegetables add very less or no oil.

  1. This recipe looks interesting. Need to try it.

  2. How can i steam balls in microwave?

    1. Dip the balls into water and remove. Arrange them into a microwave safe plastic bowl. Cover with a microwave safe plastic lid (with a hole to escape the steam). Microwave for 1-2 minutes.

    2. thnx for all very nice dishes in a simple way.
