Gheeya Kofta

This is another kofta I tried using my pancake puff pan. I am absolutely loving this pan which lets me enjoy koftas with almost no oil.

Ingredients for kofta's:
- 1 gheeya shredded (Mine was pretty big)
- 2 bread (A day or two old bread is perfect)
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp roasted jeera powder
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 chili chopped finely
- 1/3 cup coriander leaves chopped
- 2-3 tbsp besan (use as needed)
- salt to taste

Method to make kofta's:
1. Gheeya tends to realease a lot of liquid. You want to salt it and squeeze as much liquid as possible. Keep the water from the gheeya aside.
2. Tear the bread to small pieces and add all the other ingredients and mix them well. You should be able to make small balls with the mixture. As you are not deep frying these it can be slightly wet. If it is hard to make the balls then add more besan or another slice of bread.
3. Spray your Pancake Puff Aebleskiver Pan with some oil and drop these balls. Set the heat below medium and let it cook. It takes some time but you want the insides to be cooked well so be patient. Keep rolling them in the pan to cook them evenly. Spray oil as needed. Once cooked remove and let them cool.

Ingredients for the subji:
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 tomatoes chopped
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 2 tbsp garam masala powder
- 1 tsp roasted jeera and coriander powder
- 1 tsp chili powder (adjust to taste)
- salt to taste
- sugar to taste
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp jeera

Method to make the subji:
1. In a pan add the oil and jeera. Once it splutters add the onion and fry till it turns slightly brown. Now add the tomatoes and cook until it becomes mushy. Add all the masala and chili powder. Also add the water you had kept from the gheya.
2. Let it all cool. Now grind it in a food processor to a coarse paste. Pour it again in the pan and add salt and sugar according to your taste. Cook in a low flame for atleast 10 - 15 minutes. This gives the spices to blend well with the tomatoes.

Putting it together:
About 10- 15 minutes before serving heat your subji. Remove from the heat and drop in the kofta. Garnish it with coriander leaves and they taste really good with roti or biriyani.

Enjoy this healthy version of gheeya kofta.
