The gravy and the koftas are unique in this recipe. The kofta, for its part, uses a rare combination of vegetables like eggplant and cabbage; while the gravy uses an even more extraordinary combination of tamarind water and gram flour spiced with a dry masala. As a finishing touch the arrangement is laced with cream, and you have a wondrous dish on the table!
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and roll each portion into a small round ball.
- Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the koftas, a few at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in a kadhai, add the prepared paste and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Add the besan and chilli powder and sauté on a medium flame for another minute.
- Add the tamarind water, dry masala, salt, sugar, cream and 1 cup of water, mix well and bring to boil.
- Simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Just before serving, re-heat the gravy, add the koftas and cream, mix gently and cook on a slow flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve hot.
