cauliflower-kofta-curry

The original recipe uses broccoli,since me and my hubby don't like broccoli,I tried with cauliflower.. I liked this recipe when I tasted first time at Sangeeta’s house,though she had made with broccoli…I asked her the recipe,but she was not able to give that time…Since she told me the recipe source,I just got the cookbook from Library ..

Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp

  3. Heat a pan with a tsp of oil and fry the grated cauliflower. Cook covered in low flame for 4-5 minutes.
  4. ck1-horz
  5. Mix mashed potatoes,cooked cauliflower,corn flour,pepper,salt,garam masala powder and baking powder.
  6. ck2-horz
  7. Make small balls,by keeping the cheese cubes inside as shown in the picture.
  8. ck3-horz
  9. Deep fry in medium flame till golden brown and keep aside.
  10. ck4-horz
  11. For gravy,heat a pan with oil and splutter the jeera,add the chopped ginger and ginger paste. Add the tomato puree.

  16. ck7-horz
  17. Add milk and cream little by little while you mix well,in low flame. Do not let the gravy boil in high flame at any point of time. Add the koftas lastly, switch off the stove.
  18. ck8-horz

Notes

      FOR LOW FAT VERSION:
  • I have made this with cheese in the middle,you can skip that and make just the koftas and pan fry the balls in a nonstick paniyaram pan.
  • You can try stuffing grated paneer or some mixed grated vegetables(carrot,cabbage and capsicum) too instead cheese for a different version.
  • Potatoes should not be overcooked. Otherwise, the koftas turn too soft if the mashed potatoes retain water because of over cooking.
  • You can replace corn flour with 2 bread slices. Grind in a dry mixer to make it crumb and then add. You can add bread even if your kofta is too sticky and loose.

Yummy cauliflower kofta curry is ready to enjoy with roties or any pulavs.I dint add cream,just added milk… It was really yummy ,just melt in ur mouth,my kid loved and enjoyed thoroughly!!I am trying no onoin no garlic recipe for the first time and totally satisfied with the taste!

  69. looks very yummy Raks..looks like Malai Kofta one of our fav dish..how did u do tomato puree?(just grind tomatoes or bought from the store)..cheese stick?what brand where did u get that..

    i have tried many of ur recipes(Dal Makani,rawa idly adding eno was a grt tip,urundai kuzhambu)..all came out well..i am a grt fan of ur site..i like the pics n step by step illustrations..

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Uma,First of all,thanks for the wonderful words and the feedback :)
    For pureeing I just grind the tomato as such in mixer. You can use store bought too,it will give the gravy a deep red colour. I think you can get Amul Cheese sticks,here we get a local brand in Singapore.. Or you can use any cheese cubes as I did,just cut them to desired size.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Raks,tried this recipe..gravy part came out well..but the balls was a flop to me..i used only potatoes since i didn't have brocoli n cauliflower...when i dropped the potato balls in the oil it was not holding intact(it was getting out of shape n melting)what must be the reason..

    i boiled the potatos n took all the water n mashed it..i don't know where it went wrong..need ur help.thanks...

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Uma,for potato alone I think you need to add more of the binding agent,here I have used corn flour as binding agent,next time try adding two slices of bread slices when you are mashing(dont add water,just remove the brown crumbs and mash it well along with potato and corn flour)...Try this next time,sure it will come out nice...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thank you Raks..will try it n let u know..

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love your step by step photos and the koftas! I'm a big fan of koftas and generally make them from cabbage+carrot; but will try these next time! Thanks for the recipe!

  78. Hi

    I am planning to make this dish for a party. Can I drop the koftas in gravy before party? Will they become soggy if they sit in gravy for a long time? Thanks for a nice recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  79. You can drop it before, but make sure not to stir it just immerse the koftas and let it be as such... Thank you

  82. Please let me know if anybody has Baked these koftas?thanks

    ReplyDelete
  83. Good one I tried last night it came out very well.

    ReplyDelete
  84. The koftas just spread and crumbled after sometime in the oil...any idea why this happened ???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Potatoes and corn flour is must and they are must for binding the Koftas. If cauliflower is more than mentioned, then this might happen. Also if the cauliflower is grated very roughly it will also not hold shape. Grate it finely. Hope this helps

    1. If cauliflower is more and potato and cornflour are less, then it will break. Make sure its not too loose too.

  91. yesterday when i added milk for gravy then milk start to curdle...gravy was not so good due to my small mistake,but what was that....please help me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There are few possible reasons for it
      1. Too much of oil.
      2. Add milk little by little thoroughly mixing while adding each time. If you add all together, milk will curdle.
      3. Flame should be kept on low or medium.
      4. If using fresh milk, use boiled milk, not raw.

      Hope this helps

    3. Dear Rak,
      Thank you for sharing a tasty recipe. Cooked it today for our sunday lunch, it was lip smacking. I tried it without the cream, so the gravy was a litle watery. Yet, it was tasting yummy and was simple to make.
