Sweet & Sour Oat Tofu Balls

Most of us should be familiar with sweet and sour pork dish. How about turning it into a vegetarian dish? It actually taste as good as the meat version one or even better! Even my kids could not get enough of them :D The only thing am not satisfied with this dish is the sweet & sour sauce. The taste is fine, just that the amount is way too little to coat everything evenly though I've adjusted from the original recipe. I will either further fine tune this sauce ingredient or substitute the sauce from this recipe : sweet & sour pork  if I should attempt this dish again :) 

Carrots, vegetarian ham, tofu puffs, walnuts, mushroom and firm tofu
