This is a healthy version of kofta curry..you can prepare only the koftas and have it as a snack or side dish for any rice varieties.
Ingredients for Kofta
Lauki/Bottle gourd/Suraikkaai -small one, peel, grate and squeeze out the water.-1cup (approx.)
Peel and grate the lauki/bottle gourd. Squeeze out the excess water and take it in a separate bowl.
Combine the all the masala powders with grated lauki, add besan little by little till you get the consistency to make the koftas. Don't add salt.
Heat the paniyaram pan with little oil in each well on constant low heat.
Once the pan is hot, add salt to the lauki mixture, make the koftas and cook till they turn golden in color on both sides.
Onion-1 (Mince the onion)
Tomatoes-2 (grind the tomatoes into paste)
Fresh Garam masala (powder of one cloves,elaichi and cinnamon stick)
Cilantro- to garnish
Heat oil in a pan and add the bay leaf..let it splutter. Now add the minced onion and fry till the raw smell goes off.
Add the tomatoes and continue cooking till the oil oozes out.
Now add the chilli,coriander and turmeric powder& fresh garam masala, add 2 cups of water and enough salt.
Let the gravy cook for 6-7 minutes on medium heat.
Add the kofta's and cook on low heat for 5-6 minutes.
Garnish with cilantro and put off the flame.
Serve the kofta curry with your choice of Roti/Naan/Jeera Rice. For me, it tasted the best with Jeera rice! ;)
