Aloo Kofte Curry

Sometimes the mind works overtime. I had been fantasizing about spending the whole Saturday in the kitchen trying out my new recipes…..basically my own creations. One of them was aloo kofte curry. Basically potato balls in tomato curry. To give it a twist, I decided to stuff the potato balls with carrot. Turned out yummy though a little high on calories. Best save this dish in the once-in-a-blue-moon list.

Preparation Time – 45 mins

Servings – 4 people

Ingredients for Aloo Kofte

5 potatoes

1 carrot

A handful of raisins

2 tblsp cornflour

2 tblsp Salt

1 tblsp Red chilli powder

Edible red color


Boil the potatoes and mash them. Mix in cornflour, salt and red chilli powder. Keep the salt a little on the strong side for better flavor. Grate the carrots and mix a small quantity of red color in it. Keep aside. Now wet your palm and place a small piece of potato mash on it. Pat it to make a flat disk of 1 inch diameter. Place a small quantity of grated carrots on it along with a raisin. Now place a small disk of mash on top of this and seal the sides. Make the mash into a small ball taking care that the carrots do not mix with the potato. Heat the oil in a pan and deep fry the balls till golden brown. Drain the oil on a tissue. Serve in tomato gravy.
