Carrot cheese kofta curry


4 carrots cooked and mashed
1 bread slice
1 boiled and mashed potato
Salt to taste
2 tsp red chilli
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp garam masala powder
4 tbsp grated cheese
2 tbsp oil
1/4 cup cream

To grind into paste

1 onion
Bit of ginger
1 tomato
1 tsp cumin seeds

Mix mashed potato, carrots, salt, half of the dry powders (garam masala powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder)and bread (dipped in water and completely squeezed out) well. If the mixture is not thick like dough, add a little cornflour to it. Make balls and press in the center to make a small hole. Stuff it with grated cheese and cover again with the same mixture to get balls.

These can be deep fried also, but to reduce the fat and calories, it is ideal to use the paniyaram pan with just 1 tsp oil for the whole lot.

Cook till the balls are golden brown. These balls can be served as a snack for evening tea or as a starter also.

For the gravy- Heat the remaining oil, add the paste and cook till oil seperates. Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, water as required and cream. Cook for five more minutes.

Add the koftas to the gravy just before serving. Serve hot with rotis/pulav.
