- 1 bunch spinach, blanched and pureed
- 2 med. potatoes, boiled
- 2 raw bananas, boiled
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 green chilies, finely chopped
- 1" ginger, grated
- 2 tbsp. besan (gram flour)
- salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
- 1 tsp. kasoori methi (dry fenugreek leaves), crushed
- oil to shallow fry
Take a non-stick pan and sauté the pureed spinach till all the moisture is dried up. Cool and combine with all the other ingredients except, oil to make it into a dough.
Divide the dough into equal portions and form into round koftas. Be sure to wet your hands for easy handling.
Heat 1 tsp. oil on a tawa (griddle) and shallow fry 2-3 at a time on both sides on low flame till golden brown in colour.
Continue with the rest of the koftas in a similar manner. Serve hot with any chutney or sauce.
