1. the best part of any chinese dish is you can change the consistency as per your liking. if you want a thin consistency, add some water.
2. i have not added any msg to the recipe. if you want ,you can do so. but msg or mono sodium glutamate is not good for the health.
3. remember to fry the veg balls on medium heat. if they are fried on a high heat, then the outside will get cooked and the inside will be not cooked ,and if they are fried on a low heat, they will absorb oil ...balls will be very oil.
