Sheetal Kamat

Whenever we get bottle gourd, ajoy has this demand of Koftas and so yesterday was the day when I obliged and made it for him. Here is the recipe.

Kofta Curry
4 Cup Grated Bottle Gourd
1.5 Cup Bason
2 Tomatoes
1 Onion
1/2 Spoon Garlic Paste
1 Spoon Jeera
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/4 Spoon Turmeric Powder
1/4 Spoon Garam Masala
1/4 Spoon Aamchur Powder
1/4 Spoon Corriander Powder
Corriander Leaves for garnishing
Salt to taste

  • Apply salt to the grated bottle gourd and keep aside for few minutes.
  • Squize out water from the bottle gourd and mix bason, 1/2 spoon jeera, 1/2 spoon red chilli powder, garam masala, aamchur powder
  • Prepare lemon sized ball out of this mixture and deep fry them in oil over low-medium heat. Keep aside
  • Heat little oil in a pan and let the jeera splutter.
  • Add the finelly chopped onion and garlic paste and cook till golden brown
  • Add turmeric powder, remaining red chilli powder, corriander powder and salt
  • Add tomatoes and cook well. Add water and bring to boil. Once the tomatoes are cooked well keep the mixture aside to cool down a bit
  • Put the mixture into the mixie and grind to fine paste
  • In a pan add this grinded mixture, enough water to make running gravy and koftas and bring to boil
  • Garnish with corriander leaves and serve

I tried to keep the kofta spicy and gravy very less spicy so that one can enjoy koftas rather than gravy. You can vary it to your taste though

    turned out very nice :) As i was suggesting a few dry fruits like kismiss and couple of nuts inside each kofta along with cut green chilli would make it all the more tastier :) Thats how my mom used to make it and also the curry usually is dry dry (as was the case) ma used to put dahi at the time of serving. This is the dahi which we put for dahi wada.
