Veg Kofta Curry is an ethnic Indian gravy meal comprised of mixed vegetable dumplings in an onion-tomato-based sauce. Koftas are deep-fried little round or oval dumplings prepared from minced veggies, paneer, and other mild spices. The outside of these Kofta balls is crunchy, while the center is soft. Before serving, the Koftas are cooked for a few minutes in a rich onion-tomato-based stew seasoned with cumin seeds, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, fennel seeds, and other spices.

- 3 cup bottle gourd
- 2 tablespoon garam masala powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons crushed to paste green chili
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 2 pinch baking soda
- 1 teaspoon powdered turmeric
- 1 1/2 tablespoon red chili powder
- 3 cup tomato puree
- 1 cup gram flour (besan)
- 2 1/4 cup refined oil
- 2 tablespoon semolina
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 7 tablespoon coriander chutney
- Salt as required
Step 1: Grate the bottle gourd
To begin, grate a bottle of gourd into a mixing basin. Expel excess water by pushing it. Next, add the gram flour, baking soda, salt, semolina, green chili paste, and coriander paste. (Note: If water still seeps from the grated bottle guard, dry roast it briefly. It will dry out the guard and leave no juices.)
Step 2: Form little kofta balls
To combine the components, thoroughly mix them. Then, shape a tiny bit of the mixture between your palms into a small round ball. Similarly, produce as many balls as you can out of the mixture.
Step 3: Fry the balls in hot oil
Now, in a deep-bottomed pan, heat 2 cups of oil and deep-fried the kofta balls till golden brown. Using absorbent paper, drain the excess oil.
Step 4: Make the kofta masala
In a large saucepan, heat the remaining oil and add the tomato puree. Cook for a few minutes, or until bubbles appear. Now, combine the turmeric powder, salt, red chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, cinnamon powder, and cumin powder in a mixing bowl.
Step 5 Add the koftas that have been prepared
Allow it to boil for 5 minutes before adding the fried koftas and continuing to cook for a few minutes.
Step 6th: Garnish and serve
Transfer the veg kofta curry to a serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped coriander before serving.
