  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Boil 4-5 glasses of water in Handi (pot pan) and add potatoes and carrots. Cook for 10-15 minutes until easily mashable with a fork. Add peas and cook 1-2 minutes more, then drain water and transfer the vegetables to a large mixing bowl to cool.

Add onion, ginger, and serrano chili (optional). Cook for 3-4 minutes, stir occasionally until onion begins to brown. Add tomatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes more. Transfer mixture to a mixer grinder and blend until smooth.

  3. Add oil and the remaining ingredients respectively to a stew pan, saving water for the end. Add as much of water as you need to make a nice gravy consistency (will continue to thicken as it cooks). Combine ingredients and stir well, let it bubble gently over low heat. If too watery, you can add additional cashew powder to thicken it.

  4. Add the rest of the ingredients to koftas, stir and a thick gravy will form. Make small sized kofta balls. Heat oil in a fry pan and place the balls a few inches apart from each other for uniform cooking. Cook until crispy on the bottom and flip over until crispy on all sides.

  1. When koftas are done, drop them in the heated gravy and serve immediately with rice or bread of your choice
