ALOO KOFTA CURRY

This I learnt from my sister Vasupradha… The first spl dish, she prepared in her in laws house when she got married last year. It came out very well for her and got appreciation of every one in her house. She shared this recipe with me. I was thinking to prepare this when I got this from her… it was a long pending dish for me and at last we got the chance of tasting this last Sunday. I prepared this as a side dish of vegetable fried rice.

INGREDIENTS FOR KOFTA
Boiled potatoes 4
Bread slices 2
Oinion 1
Coriander leaves few
Mint leaves few
Salt to taste
Garam masala ½ tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Coriander seed powder ¼ tsp
Cumin powder ¼ tsp
Oil to fry

METHOD
Peal the skin of potatoes and smash it.
Dip the bread slices in water in few seconds and squeeze it thoroughly.
Mix both smashed potatoes and bread along with all powders and salt.
Make a small balls out of it. Deep fry in the oil.
Keep the koftas aside.

INGREDIENTS FOR GRAVY
Onion 2
Tomato 3
Garlic cloves 8
Salt to taste
Turmeric a pinch
Dried red chili 5
Cloves 2
Cardamom 2
Cinnamon 1 inch

METHOD
Grind all the above said ingredients. In a pan pour some oil and tamper cumin seeds. When it turns golden brown add the ground masala stir until the oil leaves and raw smell goes. Add some water to make a gravy. Cook in a low flame so that it will not stick onto the bottom.
Garnish with coriander leaves and add koftas. Serve hot.
