Mouth-watering steamed koftas with sprouts and greens can turn the simple Gujarati kadhi into a low cholesterol, heart-friendly treat. A tempering of cumin, mustard and fenugreek seeds lends an irresistible aroma to this Healthy Kofta Kadhi while the use of low-fat curds gives it a perfectly authentic texture in a low calorie format.
- Combine all the ingredients along with 1 tbsp of water in a deep bowl and mix well.
- Place spoonfuls of the mixture at equal distance on a steamer plate and steam them in a steamer for 6 to 8 minutes or till the koftas are firm. Keep aside to cool completely.
- Combine the curds, besan and 2 cups of water in a deep bowl and mix well using a whisk till the mixture is smooth and lump-free.
- Add the turmeric powder and ginger-green chilli paste, mix well and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and cumin seeds.
- When they crackle, add the asafetida and curry leaves and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Lower the flame, add the curds-besan mixture and salt and mix well. Cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside.
- Just before serving, re-heat the kadhi, add the koftas, mix gently and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve hot garnished with coriander.
