Kofta in spinach gravy

Hello! Welcome to my space again. Today's recipe koftas in spinach gravy was told to me by my sister-in-law.  My son never liked spinach and I had to coax him many times telling him you would become just like Popeye the sailor man and he would still refuse to eat spinach.

Since then I tried mix and match version and this recipe is result of those experiments.
But before I begin, since I use quantity as I see fit so the measurements I give below may not be accurate.  You are free to adjust them as you see it fit.


For gravy:

2 bunch of spinach washed and boiled (spinach reduces after boil)
1 onion cut in small pieces
1tbsp ginger garlic paste                                         
2 green chillies  cut in small pieces
1tomato cut in small pieces.
Salt to taste
1tsp garam masala powder
1tsp amchur powder
1tbsp oil or ghee


Boil spinach in vessel, drain out water and make a puree of it.  Keep it aside. In another pan put ghee or oil to heat. Put ginger garlic paste to sauté for a min, and then add onions, sauté it again till raw smell of onion goes. Add green chillies and tomato. Stir it for a min and add little water for tomatoes to cook. Bring to boil and then add salt, garam masala powder and amchur powder. Switch off the gas and put all this mixture of onion tomatoes in mixer and make puree of it.   Mix this with spinach puree and keep it aside.



4-5 potatoes boiled and peeled
½ cup bread crumbs or 4-5 bread pieces soaked in water and squeezed.
Salt to taste
1/2tsp amchur powder
1/2tsp coriander& cumin powder
1tsp red chili powder
1tsp garam masala powder
1/4cup coriander leaves cut
( you can add vegetables of your choice but here I kept plain)

Oil to deep fry


Mash potatoes and add all the items mentioned for kofta above.  Make small lemon sized balls of it and deep fry them.   Take them out of pan and keep on kitchen paper to soak extra oil

Before serving heat the spinach gravy for some time.  On a plate or bowl put spinach gravy first and add koftas.  If u add koftas before they would break.

For garnish I used a spoonful of butter.
End result came out as the picture below and my son happily ate his spinach.

I hope I was clear with instructions above and as a home maker  I use quantity as per my guesswork. So I am sure all you cooks would be able to make this as per your need.

Enjoy making this kofta dish and let me know how it turned out for you.
