Chinese Cabbage Money bag/Wontons/Potli

Chinese Money bag/wontons/Potli /Cabbage Money Bag.
It is basically an Italian starter.

Serves – 2

Cabbage is good for health Nowadays many kids won't like to eat It contains rich iron, so I tried this cabbage money bag snack. It look nice & kids would love to eat.
Please try this recipe it's very interesting to make

For the filling

Chopped garlic – 3 nos

Sugar– ¼ tspn

Chopped green Chilli – 1 no

Grated Cabbage – 250 gram

Grated Carrot – 100 gram

Spring Onion – 3 Strips

White Pepper – ½ tspn

Salt– ½ tspn

Vinegar– 1 tbspn

Oil– 2 tspn

For the dough

Atta (Wheat Flour) – 150 gram

Oil– 1 tbspn

Sugar– ½ tspn

Salt– ¼

Oil – for frying

In a non stick pan add oil; temper the garlic, sugar and green chilli
Add spring onion, cabbage carrot one by one stir well and cook for 5 minutes.

Add soy sauce, Vinegar, white pepper, salt mix well and remove from the heat and allow it to cool.

In another wide bowl, mix the Atta, sugar, oil and salt.

Prepare a soft dough with those ingredients.

Make small lemon size balls and roll it in atta , as needed.

Make a the balls in to a flat rotis (like puris) .

Place the flattened dough Keep 1 heaped teaspoon of the

Prepared cabbage filling in the center.

Close it gently like modak shape like a money bag and keep aside

 Heat oil in a pan keep the fire in Medium flame deep fry the all money bags.

Serve it hot with ketchup or any chutney. It is a great Starter/ breakfast/dinner/and lunch box food for Kids and adults too.

Note: This is very interesting recipe, kids will love the shape,In olden days Grannies use  the moneybags to  keep the money. money bags symbolise wealthy, whereas this cabbage  moneybag symbolise healthy.
we  can also  use mutton or  chicken filling instead of veggie.
if there is any  fear in closing the bag  you  can  use  spring onion   to tie up this bag.
