Cabbage Kofta Gravy (Bandhakhopir Kofta)

                                                                                     
Today I'm going to share a vegetarian delicacy called Cabbage kofta curry. In which koftas are made of shredded cabbage. Koftas are a great source of taste and it is a welcome change from a daily regular meals.


Ingredients:   
 3 Cups of Shredded Cabbage
 1 Cup of Grated Carrot
 1 tbsp of all purpose flour
 2-3 green chillies
 1 tsp of cumin seeds
 1 tsp of salt to sprinkle
 Oil to deep fry


Method:
Sprinkle little salt on a plate of shredded cabbage. Leave it for 10 ~ 15 minutes and then remove the excess water from the cabbage by squeezing with your hand. Now add the remaining ingredients (except oil) and make sure that the mixture is not watery ( if required, add 1 tsp of flour so that you are able to form a ball). Take a small portion of the mixture in your hand and make a small  round ball. Heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat. Deep fry the kofta balls till they turn golden brown. Place  the balls on a paper towel and keep aside.
                                                                          


To make the gravy we need:
 2 Big Tomatoes
 2 Onions
 6-7 Cashews
 2 tsp of Poppy seeds
 1" Cinnamon sticks 
 2 Cloves
 1 Black Cardamom
 2 Green Cardamom
 2-3 Pepper corns
 2 Onions
 2 tsp of Ginger -Garlic paste
 2 Green Chillies
 1 tsp of Coriander powder
 1 tsp of Haldi ( Turmeric) powder
 2 tsp of ginger garlic paste
 1 1/2 Cup of warm water
 Salt as per taste
 Cilantro for garnishing





Method : 
To make onion puree, heat a pan of water till it boils. Add onions and further heat it for 3-4 minutes. Drain out the water and puree in a blender.
Heat oil in a non - stick pan. Add onion puree and stir it for 5-6 minutes. In the meantime , blend together tomatoes, kaju, all garam masalas and green chillies. When the puree turns a little thick add the ginger garlic paste. When the oil begins to separate, add haldi, red chilli powder and saute for 1 minute. Now add the above tomato paste and fry on a low heat till it leaves oil from the side of pan. Add warm water, adjust salt and cover the lid for 3 ~ 4 minutes. After a while when the gravy becomes thick in consistency turn off the flame. Just before serving, spread kofta balls on a serving bowl and pour the gravy over the koftas. Heat it in a microwave or on a gas burner for 2 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve with rice or parothas.
