Spinach Manchurian

This recipe is my innovation. I keep thinking about recipes that are delicious but healthy as well. This recipe could be categorized as specially for kids, since usually they do not want to eat green leafy vegetables. So for all those troubled moms here is a creative recipe.

For the manchurian balls-
1 cup spinach leaves; chopped,
1/2 cup cabbage; finely shredded,
Salt and pepper to taste,
1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies (if you like),
1 tsp soy sauce,
Cornflour as required for binding,
Oil for frying.

For the sauce-
1/2 cup chopped greens of scallions (spring onions),
2 scallions; finely chopped,
1 green chilli; deseeded and slit lenghtwise,
1 tbsp cornflour,
1 1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce,
1 tsp chilli sauce,
Salt and pepper to taste,
Olive oil,

Mix together all the ingredients for the manchurian balls and knead well. Make small round balls. Heat oil in a wok for deep frying, lower the flame to low-medium and then drop these balls into the oil in batches. Fry till they turn reddish-golden in color, drain and set aside.
To prepare the sauce-
Heat olive oil in a skillet, add scallions and fry for a minute. Then add the greens, chilli and again saute for 2 minutes. Now add soy sauce, chilli sauce, salt, pepper, water (enough to form a thin gravy) and let it boil. Meanwhile mix cornflour in 1/2 cup water to form a paste and pour into the gravy. Keep stirring. Soon the gravy would start thickening, then drop the manchurian balls into it, cover and put off the flame. Serve with boiled noodles or steamed rice.
