Red Cabbage and Sweet Potato Bullets ( Step by Step)

After making my Marvelous Marble Idli with Red Cabbage, I was able to use only some of the cabbage. When ever I open the fridge this purple beauty (still have some left) reminding me that I have to use my head around this cabbage head and need to explore some more recipes. In that quest, I have come across this recipe at Sheela's Delectable Victuals. The minute I see it, couldn't resist to make it, as kids are still in the bed,  I was able to get some clicks to post step by step with picture details.

This is such a fast, easy recipe, by the time hubby is home (from his yoga class), it's a surprise appe-teezer  for him. This looked tempting, tasted yummy and very healthy (I know it's a hard combination to find it.).

Red Cabbage Sweet Potato Bullets
As hubby is not a big fan of cabbage, (and that too this red cabbage) I didn't even make it a point for him to try. He came home and said they look nice and started eating one by one. I was so thrilled that he liked it and finished most of them (saying to myself , Yes I did it, I made him eat cabbage, I think mom instincts does not know that it is hubby and not Abhi). :-)

Make your hubby try some cabbage now, Here is the recipe for you and enjoy!

Adapted from: Delectable Victuals
Sweet Potato - 1
Red Cabbage - 1 Cup
Bread Slices   - 2 ( I have used Multi Grain)
salt - 1tsp
Red Chili Powder/ paprika  - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Curry Powder - 1 Tsp
Corn Starch  - 1 Tbsp
Bread Crumbs - 1/3 cup ( or enough to roll the bullets)
Oil - 1 tbsp

1. First Boil the Sweet Potato, I have boiled ( in a bowl of water) it in microwave for 8 min. Let it cool, peel the sweet potato cut into cubes.
2. Chop the Red cabbage into thin slices ( 2 inch long). ( will be moderate for bullet shape)
3. Chop the Bread into small slices.
4. Mix all the above along with salt, paprika, turmeric powder, coriander powder. and set aside for 5 min. The salt will bring the moist from the vegetables. Again mix it it becomes like a dough now.

5. Add the Corn Starch and Curry Powder and mix it well.

6. Make small rounds and make them like logs (abt 2 inch or similar to bullet shape).

7. Take the Bread Crumbs in a wide plate and roll these bullets into bread crumbs so that all sides are coated with crumbs evenly.

8. Take a wide non stick pan and add the oil. Add these bullets to the pan.

9. Keep it on medium heat and let the bullets roast (light brown) evenly turning them on all sides.

10. Transfer them to platter and serve them hot with Tomato Pudina ( Mint) sauce.

  • I have used spices moderately, to serve as snacks for kids also. If you want much spicy adjust your spices accordingly.
  • I have used corn starch and curry powder for rich texture and more flavor, which is different from the original recipe.
  • If you don't have the Red Cabbage or Sweet Potato, you can alternate with Green Cabbage and Potato or Potato and Baby Spinach. 
Another fun representation of Pyramid for kids.  Couldn't resist and I ate the top one, before I clicked. ;-)
