Here goes the recipe

For the Manchurian balls:
2-3 boiled potatoes
1 carrot grated
1/2 cup cabbage shredded
1/2 medium sized capsicum finely chopped.
2-3 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 mince of ginger finely chopped
2 green chillies finely chopped
2 tbsp cornflour

For the balls:
Take a bowl mash the boiled potatoes+ add in the grated carrot+ chopped capsicum+shredded cabbage+garlic+ginger+green chillies+salt+pepper+cornflour.
Mix all the ingredients well so that the balls can be made properly.

Mix in the salt + ajinomoto + all the sauces.
Cook them for a while now add in the vegetable stock + 1 tbsp of cornflour to make the consistency of the gravy thick.
Mix them all well... and let it simmer on the stove.
Check the flavours if necessary add in more sauce and the white pepper powder.
Now add in the balls.
