Spinach Kofta Curry

I usually prepare kofta curry with different vegetables, this time I tried with spinach and  it came out so well. It was so yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spinach Kofta is a grand party dish and goes well with rotis and naans. This is prepared by deep frying kofta’s (balls) made with spinach, potatoes, corn flour and  cook them  in a rich gravy prepared with  spinach, onions, cashew nut paste and lemon juice.



Ingredients:

Corn flour – 1 tsp

Onions – 2 no
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Cashewnuts – 4 -5 no
Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
Lemon juice – 4-5 tsps
Shah jeera – 1 tsp

Preparation

  • To make koftas, in a bowl mix spinach, mashed potatoes, corn flour, green chillies, ginger garlic paste and salt.
  • Make small size balls and deep fry them in oil and keep aside
  • Make paste of onions, spinach, cashewnuts in a blender and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a cooking vessel add shah jeera and when it splutters 
  • Add ginger garlic paste and fry for 1-2 mts

  • Lastly add koftas and simmer for 1 minute turn off the heat
  • Serve hot with rotis and naans.
