Good morning from Australia. Can you provide a link to your kofta receipe that lists the ingredients for the vegetable kofta. The video link is to chettinad chicken. Many thanks.

My thanks. I had cooked the lamb kofta some weeks ago (it was excellent) and thought I would try the vegetable variation after watching the video.

Hi @Ken Haylan @MattC I think you are referring to the veg kofta I did in the cook along a few weeks ago! I haven’t put that up as a recipe as yet but here are the ingredients:
For the Kofta Balls
1 large Potato
80g Cauliflower Florets
40g Green Peas
40g Carrots
40g Green Beans
40g red pepper
250g Paneer
1 Green Chilli
Handful Coriander Leaves
25-50g Chickpea Flour
1 tsp Coriander seeds, crushed
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Cumin seeds, crushed
1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1 tsp Dry Mango Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1. Add the vegetables - potatoes, carrots, beans, pepper, cauliflowers florets and green peas, paneer and green chilli into a food processor and blitz. Place into a bowl.
2. Chop the coriander leaves and add to the bowl along with the spices and mix.
3. Sprinkle in the chickpea flour a little at a time until it start to bind the vegetables together.
4. Using one hand squish everything together until it’s thick and you can make balls with the mixture. You can also use breadcrumbs along with some corn flour.
5. Heat your oil for frying the kofta. Test it’s hot enough by adding a little of the mixture – if it sinks and sizzles and floats immediately then it is ready. You don’t want it to be too hot so the kofta brown too quickly and remain raw inside.
6. Make golf ball sized balls and very gently place one into the oil. It should sizzle and start to brown. Don’t be too heavy handed with them as they will break so gently turn them once browned.
7. Cook for about 3-5 minutes until browned all over and then remove to a bowl lined with kitchen roll. Taste the first one to check it’s cooked inside and the seasoning is ok. If not adjust the seasoning and then cook the kofta in batches.

@Ken Haylan Not sure I'm on the same page. I believe Hari only has a lamb (not veg) kofta recipe. Did you mean a different veg dish, like pakora or a curry?
