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)
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!!!
