Suggestions

  • You can stuff the potato kofta with some raisins or cashews to make it tastier.
  • While deep frying the koftas, don’t over crowd the oil with koftas otherwise they may splatter if the temperature of oil reduces. Oil should be sufficiently hot for frying the koftas.
  • Make sure you add right amount of ararot into the mashed potatoes, if its quantity is less then the koftas may start splattering into the oil.
  • You can make gravy with curd, cashews, poppy seeds, ararot, chickpea flour, onion or anything else you like.
