Lauki Ke Kofte | Bottle Guard ( lauki ) Recipe | Kofta Recipe

I don't like lauki but kofte I like very much. My Mom always making because we didn't like yukky lauki and As all Moms wants to feed something healthy to their kids.
This is really Yummy n healthy recipe for fussy eaters.

Preparation Time 10 min.   Cooking Time  30 min.
Serving  3-4

For kofta
1 Cup Grated Lauki(Bottle guard)

1/2 cup Besan(gram flour)

1/4 tsp carom Seeds

1 tsp Green chill paste

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

Salt to taste

3 tbsp roughly chopped cashew and raisins
Oil to deep fry

For Gravy
2 Tomatoes
2 Onions
1/2 inch ginger piece
4-5 garlic

1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chill powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
a pinch of garam masala
1/2 inch of cinnamon stick
1 Bay leaf
salt to taste

2-3 tbsp fresh cream

Take all kofta ingredients in plate or bowl except cashew and raisins and mix well. (if needed add water)
Divide the mixture into equal portions. 

Stuff little cashew and raisin mixture into each portion and shape them into round koftas.(I gave Tikki shape)

Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep-fry the koftas till golden brown and crisp on the outside. Drain on absorbent paper. 

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick kadai. Add onions and saute until light golden brown.Add ginger and garlic saute for few seconds then Add the tomato and 1/2 cup of water cook for 3-4 min. or till tomatoes are pulpy.
Add red chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, salt and saute.

Transfer this mixture into a mixer jar, cool and grind it. 
Take pan heat 2 tbsp oil add cinnamon stick and bay leaf,now add grounded paste and saute 2-3 min.
Add 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Add koftas boil 2-3 min.
Add cream and garam masala and mix well .

Serve hot with roti,chapati,paratha or naan.

You can give any shape to kofta like tikki,ball,roll etc.
I stuffed dry fruits in kofte but can use grated paneer also.
Kofta dough shouldn't be hard otherwise kofte will be very hard.
