Cabbage Kofta Curry

Cabbage is one of my favorite veggies. It looks very fresh and has a cute shape of a ball. But when it comes to cooking it became repetitive with the same recipes being made over and over again. I was so bored that I had to try something different. My old recipe collection came to my rescue. Flipped flopped some pages and voila!!!! I got this spicy, mouth watering recipe. What a lunch it was..

So enjoy your meal with this spicy cabbage kofta curry!!

Ingredients –

Cabbage (sliced) – 1 ½ cups
Potatoes (cut into cubes) – 2 medium sized
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tablespoon
Tomatoes (finely chopped) – 2 medium sized
Onion (finely chopped) – 1 large sized
Coriander Powder- 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder- 1 teaspoon
Red chili powder – 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon
Bay leaf – 1 -2
Garam masala – 1 teaspoon
Kasuri methi – 1 teaspoon
Besan/ Chick pea flour – as per requirement
Salt – to taste
Sugar – ½ teaspoon
Oil – to deep fry and for the veggie

Procedure –

  • Boil the cabbage until tender, drain and keep aside to cool down.
  • In a bowl transfer the cooled cabbage and add ½ teaspoon red chili powder, ½ teaspoon turmeric powder, salt and add besan along with little water so that small round shaped balls (koftas) could be formed.

  • Deep fry these koftas on a low flame so that these get fried inside out properly.

  • Also fry the potatoes like finger chips.
  • In a thick bottomed pan heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add chopped onion and bay leaves. Sauté until the onion becomes transparent.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and chopped tomatoes and fry well. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, and turmeric powder and garam masala to it. Cook on a low flame until oil starts to separate from the sides.
  • Add little water to make the gravy according to the required consistency. Add red chili powder, salt and sugar to it and mix well.
  • Add the fried potatoes and let it cook.
  • Finally add the koftas and stir gently and cook for 2 minutes with lid on.
  • Serve hot with rotis or chapattis.

Tips –

One could also use fresh garam masala.
The koftas taste just like pakodas, so could be made as a tea time snack also ;).
