Step-by-step instructions of cooking vegetable bullets
Keeping ready the ingredients makes cooking easy. Make a coarse paste of green chillies, ginger, garlic and peas. Keep aside.
Combine mashed potato, grated carrot and beetroot, chopped cabbage, custard powder, all purpose flour, pepper powder, nutmeg powder, salt and the coarse paste. No need to add water. Prepare a firm dough out of these ingredients.
Divide the dough into 15 equal parts. Shape each part like a bullet. Keep ready all the bullet shapes.
Mix bread crumbs and semolina in a tray.
Heat oil for deep frying. Dust each bullet in the bread crumbs-semolina mix. Drop 5-6 such bullets into the medium hot oil. Fry them for 3-4 minutes, or till they turn brownish color. Adjust the fire accordingly.
For even frying on all sides, turn the bullets occasionally.
Remove on a paper towel. Serve the bullets when they are hot. Enjoy eating them with tomato sauce. Happy eating!!
