Are there any cardio exercises I can do while in plaster cast for grade 3 ankle sprain once I can walk on it without pain?

In brief: Yes

Try rowing and the hand bike.
I would avoid exercises that stress your ankle too much while it is in the cast.

In brief: Stationary cycling

If your orthopedist ok's it, you could try stationary cycling for aerobic fitness.
You can even do this with one leg, if necessary, and still get a good workout.
