Step 1) In a mixing bowl add Cabbage, carrot, bell pepper, chili sauce, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix once and then add maida, corn starch and mix well to combine everything together. We don't need to add any water at this point because the vegetables will release lot of its own moisture. You you still find that your mixture is dry then sprinkle a few drops of water and then mix. (do not add too much of water) .I didn't add any water. 

Step 2) Take a portion of the veg mix and make it into medium sized balls.

Step 3) Fry the balls over medium heat. Once they develop nice golden brown color on all the sides take it off from the heat and keep it aside. (try with one ball first, it it separates add some maida to it and then mix)
