Healthy koftas served in a delicious tomato-based gravy.


For Kofta

1 small head or 6-7 florets broccoli
1/2 cup paneer (grated or mashed)
1/2 cup boiled potatoes (peeled and mashed)
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
2 green chillies or to taste
1 teaspoon chaat masala
Salt to taste
Oil for deep-frying

For Gravy

2 onions, roughly chopped
5 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon Kashmiri red chilli powder or to taste
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
Salt to taste



* Place the broccoli florets in a steamer and steam for 7-8 minutes. Once steamed, mash them using a potato masher.

* Add coriander leaves, ginger and green chillies in a grinder and grind into a smooth paste.

* Combine the mashed broccoli, paneer, potatoes, chaat masala, salt, freshly ground coriander, ginger and green chilli paste in a large bowl. Mix well. Shape the mixture into small balls (koftas).

* Heat oil in a deep pan for deep frying. Deep fry the koftas till they are golden brown. Place them on a dish lined with kitchen towel to get rid of the excess oil.

* Heat oil in a deep non-stick pan. Add the onions, garlic and ginger. Sauté for 3-4 minutes (while stirring continuously) or till the onions turn golden brown in colour. Turn off the heat and let it cool.

* Transfer the sautéed onions into the grinder and grind into a smooth paste. Add 1 tablespoon water if required. Transfer this paste to the pan. Add the freshly ground tomatoes, salt and Kashmiri red chilli powder. Cook on medium heat while stirring occasionally till it reduces to a thick masala paste and oil starts separating from this masala paste.

* Add 1 cup of water and let it boil. When the water starts boiling, cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 5 minutes. You can add more water if you do not like a thick gravy. Add garam masala to the gravy and mix well.

* To serve, place the koftas in a large bowl and pour warm gravy over them. Serve immediately.
