koftas
Make about 18 balls
2 Cups grated lauki (bottle gourd)
½ Cup of gram flour or as needed
2 Tablespoons corn flour (optional)
2 Medium green chilies-fine chopped
¼ Cup fine chopped onions
½ Teaspoon red chili powder
1 Pinch of baking powder
1 Teaspoon salt or to your taste
2 Cups of vegetable oil for frying the
koftas
Directions for making the koftas:
1. Peel the lauki and with the grater fine grate it.
2. Grated lauki has lot of water, take some lauki at a time and press gently between your palms to squeeze the water out. Save the water and use it for the gravy.
3. Place the squeezed lauki in the bowl, add gram flour, corn flour, chopped onions, chopped green chilies, red chili powder and salt and mix everything
together to the consistency for rolling the balls for koftas.
4. Before you start making balls heat 2 cups of oil in a frying pan or a kadhi on medium heat in about 8 to 10 minutes oil will become hot, to test it drop a small piece of dough in the hot oil if the dough start sizzling and comes up it means oil is hot enough, turn the heat down.
5. While oil is heating up wet your palms and take a little portion of the dough at a time and roll into small balls, place them on the plate. #Gratedlaukicontain water try to make kofta balls as quickly as you can otherwise dough become watery and you need to add more gram flour.
6. Now gently drop 7 to 8 balls in the hot oil, do not touch the balls, let them fry for 2 minute once the bottom of the balls looks light brown, turn them around, and let the other side fry, with the spatula flip balls around few times for 8 to 10 minutes or until they become golden brown. Balls should be fried on low heat so that inside of the balls get cooked.
7. Once the balls become #Goldenbrown or the desired color take them off the oil and place them in a plate over the paper towel so that extra oil could be absorbed.
8. Turn the heat down because the oil is hot and you do not want the other batch of balls fried quickly.
9. Drop another batch of #Koftaballs then raise the heat a little and let them fry. Repeat the process until all the balls are fried.
