Aloo Matar Kofta

One more in the series of No Onion No Garlic Gravies

Ingredients (Translation)

3 boiled potatoes
1/2 cup boiled peas
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp tomato puree
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp coriander seeds powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds powder
1/2 tsp ginger paste
Finely chopped coriander leaves to garnish
Oil to fry
Salt to taste

Mash potatoes and peas together and add salt, corn flour and turmeric. Make small balls of it .

Deep fry these balls. The boiled potatoes and peas should be dry without water. Drain excess oil on kitchen tissue.

Heat 1 tsp oil, add ginger, tomato puree, dry masala powders, salt and allow it to boil. Add some water to it and cook for five minutes. I mashed one kofta to make the gravy more thick. Add the koftas in the end just before serving. Garnish with finely chopped leaves.

Aloo Peas Koftas ready to serve with hot rotis. The recipe is same as corn kofta minus corn and adding peas.

Once i tried ti make these but the minute i fried the balls they just fell apart. You can imagine my face when it happened.
Should try your way.

Onion is such a staple in my kitchen that I can't imagine making a dish without it. You, however, make it sound like an interesting proposition.
