Beetroot Kofta curry

I stole this recipe from our dear friend Satya from My Innovative Kitchen.Today morning I saw this recipe and in 1 hour I was relishing it.I am soooo glad I tried it out.I did make some changes just to put in some effort of my own but the original version is also worth a try.





Ingredients:
For the koftas
Beetroot-3 small,i used ready to eat cooked beetroot
Potatoes -4 small boiled and mashed
Ginger-minced,1tsp
Garlic minced-1tsp
Pepper powder-1tsp
Chilli powder-1/4 tsp
Cumin powder-1/2 tsp
salt as per taste.

For the curry
Onion-1med,finely chopped
tomato-1 med pureed
Ginger garlic -minced 1 tsp
chilli powder-1tsp
garammasala-1tsp
kasuri methi leaves-1tsp
salt as per taste
Coriander leaves-for garnish
cream-optional
oil-3 to 4 tbsp



Mince or grate the beetroot.Squeeze out the juice and keep it away.Mix the ingredients for the koftas.Make it into small balls. I shallow fried it cos my beetroot was cooked.You may deep fry it but lightly coat it with some cornflour so that the koftas do not break.When done remove it on to a kitchen towel.
Now add the onion,ginger and garlic in to the same oil.When onion is cooked add the spices.Let it roast for few seconds.Then add the tomato puree and cook it for few mins.You can add the beetroot juice to it.When the gravy thickenscool it down and blend it .Pour it in to a pan.When it boils, powder the kasuri methi leaves with your palms and add it into the gravy.Switch off the flame and add cream.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve with rotis!!!!!!
