Rajma Kofta

    I never missed making Kofta or cutlet when there is a get-together in our home...Usually i make it with Channa dal, and i always get appreciated for this recipe.
I also have another habit like if i am invited to some ones place for lunch, or even we planned to visit any relatives home then i use to carry some home cooked sweets or savouries for them where i get some satisfaction in that...

This recipe i tried with Rajma....hope we don't have any rules that kofta should be in cylindrical shape :) so, i made it flat and round.

One more reason for making this kofta is we have some homemade Yogurt Mint dip and Hummus in our fridge...so, we would love to have it with this koftas...


Rajma - 1 cup
Potatoes - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
salt to taste
Oil to shallow fry
Corn flour - 1 tbsp.

Soak the Rajma overnight and pressure cook along with  de skinned potatoes.
Drain excess water.
Grind the Rajma in mixer, coarsely  do not add water and mash the potatoes with hand.
Add ginger garlic paste, Garam masala, chilly powder and salt and mix well.
It will be in a dough consistency.
Dissolve the corn flour in water to get the starch, it should be in milk consistency.
It is important to use corn flour starch otherwise the koftas will get dissolved in oil or it will break.

Now roll the dough to desire shape, dip it in corn starch and shallow fry it.
Serve it with tomato ketchup or with any of your favourite Dips.
