Vegetable kofta- bake version

After posting almost a series of sweets in my previous posts, Today I decided that it was time to post some nice, spicy, mouth watering recipe.


I made this vegetable kofta 3 weeks ago, but some ocassion or the other kept me from posting this one though I was very excited about this particular one as I used my oven for something else other than my cakes(as I had planned when I made this).

I had planned to use the paniyaaram pan to shallow fry the koftas , but later baked them. Yes I do look for low calorie and fat free recipes nowadays.And when you always have alternate way to substitute the fats ,there is no need to resist the temptations to such exotic dishes. There was no difference in the taste and that I could have them without any guilt.

Recipe Notes

Baked Koftas

For the gravy, grind the onions,tomatoes,ginger and garlic to a paste. Heat oil in a pan. Add the ground paste. Saute for sometime. Then add rest of the spices,kasuri methi and cashew paste. Add half a cup of water and cook for around 20 minutes till the raw smell of the onions and tomatoes disappear and the consistency is a bit thick(should not be runny).Add the curd/cream.Mix well.

Add the koftas in the gravy just few minutes before serving.(Don't add them before serving, otherwise the koftas will become soggy.It is supposed to be slightly crispy)

  5. Regarding the pudding cookies…the powder I referred in my recipe looks a lot like custard powder with sugar included …so you can use any flavored custard powder of the same quantity and add sugar to taste for the cookies too…
