Cabbage Kofta

Kofta is  one of the favorite preparation in my home. Koftas can be made of any vegetables like bottle gourd(lauki), raw banana , potato, cabbage etc or even meat . Its one of the best way to use up the vegetable that your family hates otherwise. Fried up koftas makes a good appetizer on its own and can be dropped in any gravy of choice and it makes a yummy accompaniment for roti.


For Kofta :

Cabbage - 2 cups , grated
Bread - 1 slice (optional)
Besan - 2 tbsp or more as needed
Soda - a pinch
Ajwain - 1/4 tsp
Ginger - 1/2 tsp ,grated
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

For Gravy :

Onion  - 1/2 cup , grated
Tomato - 1 cup , pureed

Turmeric Pw - 1/4 tsp
Chili Pw - 11/2 tsp
Coriander Pw - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp

2. Save the water  and dip the bread in it and save rest of water.
3. Squeeze out as much water as possible from bread and add to cabbage.
4. Add ajwain , salt , ginger , soda and besan to cabbage and mix well.
5. Heat oil  and add a pinch of mixture and it should rise to the top slowly.
6. Make small balls of the mixture and drop into the oil .
