POTATO KOFTAS IN SPINACH SAUCE (KOFTAS IN PALAK GRAVY)

This is a very luscious dish to relish. Koftas turned just yummilicious with this spinach sauce, soft delicious koftas in rich spinach gravy. Today, I made it first time, but my mom used to make this sauce with different kinds of koftas and we all enjoyed it a lot . When I saw this recipe on Homely Food, asked my mom and did some little bit changes and we all enjoyed this dish for its distinct flavor. Specially my mom relished this delicious dish after a long time. 

INGREDIENTS:

4-5 Potatoes (boiled & peeled)
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs

METHOD:
HOW TO MAKE POTATO KOFTAS:
In a large bowl, put boiled potatoes and add all other ingredients except oil.

Mash well, till the mix looks like a smooth dough.


Take some amount of the kofta mix at a time and flatten a bit with your palms. Set aside. Following same way make all koftas from kofta mix. (Here, I made 16 koftas)

Heat little oil for shallow fry in a wok. Arrange 8-9 koftas at a time. 


Shallow fry both sides till it turn golden brown and crispy. Drain oil and set aside. Do the same process for remaining koftas. Now yummy koftas are ready.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH SAUCE:
Heat a wok, add spinach, Turmeric and little salt in it. Fold for 3-4 minutes, don't cover the lid.


Take out and grind with 2 green chillies to make a smooth puree. Keep it aside. 

Now heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan or wok. Add onions in it. 


Fry till onion turns into pinkish, add ginger-garlic paste now. Fry for another two minutes till the raw smell of the spice disapprears.

Add tomatoes, garam masala, dry mango powder, kitchen king masala and little salt in it. Fry till tomatoes gets mushy and leaves oil. 


Pour onion tomato mixture a mixie jar. Grind to make it a smooth paste. Set aside.


Heat clarified butter in a fresh pan or wok. Add tomato-onion paste in it. Saute for 2 minutes.

Now pour spinach puree (which kept aside before) in it. Fry for 2-3 minutes.


Add 3/4 cup fresh water in it. Bring it to a boil (adjust salt here). Add koftas in it. 


Stir nicely and remove from heat now. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with chapatis, naan, kulchas or any rice dish, !
