Great Indian Recipe

     I want to share a really yummy recipe I adapted from 
     Laxmi's Vegetarian Kitchen by Laxmi Hiremath. ( It was
     practically fatfree to begin with.)  I left out the
     jalapenos and salt for my family but tried them with
     heat for myself...they're good either way!
     Baked Yam Koftas in Green Gravy
     2 medium yams (pealed,sliced,boiled,drained)
     1/2 c peas
     1 tsp minced garlic
     2 jalapenos minced (optional)
     1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)
     2 T chopped cilantro
     1/2 tsp salt (optional)
     pinch pepper
     2 T cornstarch
     1/4 tsp baking powder
     1/4 C peas
     1/2 C bell pepper (green!)
     1/2 C cilantro
     1 jalapeno (optional)
     1 clove garlic
     1/4 tsp black mustard seed
     1/2 tsp ground cumin
     1/2 tsp ground coriander
     3/4 tsp salt (optional)
     1 tsp sugar
     Preheat oven to 400 degrees
     Combine kofta ingredients and mix thoroughly,
     form into 1 inch balls and bake 1 inch apart 
     non-stick baking sheet until golden, about 30 min.
     Meanwhile, blend together 1st 5 gravy ingredients
     in a blender with 1 cup water.
     In sauce pan on med-high put mustard seeds and
     heat until they start to pop, then add blended
     ingredients.  cook 5 min and add the rest of
     the ingredients. Simmer for 10 min.
     Cool koftas for 5 min.  Pour gravy into a
     serving dish, add koftas and serve hot.
     I served this with a basmati rice green pea pilaf
     and a vegie curry.  It was so yummy, my family 
     scarffed them up before anything else!
     If anyone else has any spicy Indian dishes that are
     unusual, please post!  I LOVE INDIAN FOOD!!!
