Low Fat Malai Kofta




I love Malai Kofta but I have never made it as it has to be deep fried. After seeing Indian Vegetarian Kitchen blogspot I was inspired to try this recipe. I changed the recipe to make vegetable kofta. It came out very well.

Ingredients:
For Kofta :
Bread slices-3
potatoes(cooked, peeled and mashed)-2
Fresh grated paneer-1/2 cup
Grated Cauliflower -1/4 cup
Coriander leaves chopped-a handful
Grated carrot -1/4 cup
Grated cabbage - 1/4 cup
Spinach - (chopped) -1/4 cup
Salt
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Red chilli powder-1/4 tsp
Coriander powder-1/2 tsp
Jeera Powder- 1/2 tsp
Rasam Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp


For Gravy:
Oil-2 tbsp
Cloves-3
Cinnamon-2 inch stick
Cardamom-2
Star Anise-2(crushed)
Jeera-1 tsp
Ginger chopped-1 tsp
Garlic chopped-3 pods
cashews-12
Onion chopped-1 medium sized
Tomatoes chopped-3
Salt
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder- as per taste
Coriander powder-1 tsp
poppy seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Milk(I used 2% fat)-1/2 cup
Coriander leaves-to garnish

Method:
To make the koftas:
Soak each bread slices in water and gently squeeze excess water. Mix with rest of the ingredients and make small balls. Heat kuzhipaniyaram(Appe) pan. Add 2-3 drops of oil or spray Pam in each hole. Place the balls and cook on both sides till golden brown. Set aside.


To make the gravy:
Heat oil in a wide pan. Add jeera and let it crackle. Add cloves, cinnamon, star anise, cardamom and fry for a few seconds. Add chopped ginger, garlic and onions.. Fry till the onions are cooked and turn brown. Add tomatoes, some more salt and all the spice powders. Fry for a few minutes until tomatoes turn soft. Allow the mixture to cool. Grind it with cashews and poppy seeds. Put the mixture on the stove again. Add milk and heat it for 5 minutes. Add kofta balls and simmer for 2 minutes.

Yeah the Appam pan...makes me feel buy it one right now.
The koftas look yumm, and knowing that these arent deep fried, makes these such a guilty free recipe
