Malai koftas/How to make ricotta potato kofta/ step by step pictures/ Deep fried potato cheese balls in indian style


I really loved these all pictures...Even though they looks simple,lightening was perfect in them..Along with that,koftas also perfectly came out..Here in foz,after a long time,iam getting spinach..One day just cooked spinach fry..and then after searching web,attracted by palak kofta gravy recipe ..Though palak gravy is recipe is simple,koftas process is little bit big and tough..If the koftas are perfect then the gravy is simple to make...Instead of making palak gravy you can use them in any gravy. Here first Iam sharing only about how to make koftas..Soon will share spinach kofta gravy recipe too..

Coming to this recipe,If you balance the measurement of potato n paneer along with good amount spices koftas come outs perfectly..Shaping the koftas is very important,other wise,while frying koftas may spread out in oil.Also,keep flame in medium,Because we are using raw paneer,it needs time to cook inside the koftas....I forgotten taking pictures of inside kofta...Actually it`s damn hot in foz..That too in the after noon time the complete sun light is falling in the hall and iam in full of sweat all the days..After cooking and clicking this koftas,I was totally tired...Then within few minutes DH was there in home for lunch..So,I missed to take the pictures of inside part of the koftas..DH had lunch with this gravy and said they are tasty too..With those positive words,was confirmed,that they fried well and felt that the texture was also good...Try it if you lik ethis kind of foods and let me know plz..

HOW TO COOK

Boil chopped potato and mash it..Grate paneer..

In a mixing bowl take mashed potato,grated paneer all spice powders,cilantro leaves,corn flour and mix every thing well..make it like a soft mixture.It should be hard not sticky or loose.

Then take some mixture and roll it like ball..Size is depended on your choice..

Mean while heat some oil in kadai for deep fry..When the oil is hot,drop kofta balls slowly..Let them sit for 1 minute in the bottom first..

Then start frying them in medium flame.Once after done remove on kitchen paper..

You can serve with ketchup or chili sauce...OR can use in any gravy recipes..later I cooked palak kofta gravy..


THE FIRST PIC IS SPINACH BOILING-NOT RELATED TO THIS RECIPE

THE LAST ONE SPINACH IN MIXY JAR-RELATED TO OTHER RECIPE


MAHAS NOTES

Balancing the paneer n potato quantity is important..Other wise,wile deep frying it may lose the shape.Per 1 big potato 1/2 cup grated paneer is enough..If you increase the quantity of potato or paneer make sure to equal the quanity of another too..

Adjust spices as per your taste.you can omit cumin powder n use cumin seeds.

Also can use home made paneer .You can green chili paste too..

Can use all purpose flour/Maida instead of corn flour.

Chat masala is my personal choice.can skip it.
