Yummy potato balls cheesy from inside cooked in creamy spinach sauce. Its a labour intensive dish but its worth the effort and makes a great main course party dish. Goes very well with naan, pulao or parathas. Trust me, it is really scrumptious and delightful.


3 Potatoes (Parboiled)
1/2 Cup Freshly made Cottage Cheese (Paneer)
4 tbsp Bread Crumbs
5-6 tbsp + 2 tbsp Corn Flour
Mozzarella Cheese, Cut into 9 Nos 1/4" Cubes
1/4 tsp Dried Oregano
1/4 tsp Dried Thyme
2 tbsp Finely Chopped Cilantro
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Chaat masala
Salt to taste
Oil For Deep Frying


500 gm Baby Spinach (or may use leaves only) 
2-3 Green Chillies (As Per Taste)
6 Garlic Pods (Finely Chopped)
1 Large Tomato (Pureed)
1/2 tsp Caraway Seeds (Shah Jeera)
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Kitchen King Masala
1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder
3-4 tbsp Oil
1/2 Cup Fresh Cream
1 tsp Butter (Optional)
Salt to taste



Mash parboiled potatoes very nicely.
Add cilantro, chaat masala, oregano, thyme, red chilli powder, cottage cheese and salt. Mix all ingredients well and keep aside for 2 minutes.
After that add 5-6 tbsp corn flour into in it. Mix well. Keep mixture into refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Dilute 2 tbsp cornflour with 1/4 cup water. Whisk properly, so that there should not any lump inside the batter.
Take a small lemon sized ball, stuff 1or 2 mozzarella cheese cubes in it. Dip the ball in cornflour batter and roll on bread crumb. Thus, I made total 9 balls from the mixture.
Heat enough oil and deep fry the balls till golden brown. Set those balls aside; or you may serve as a party snack with green chutney....:)


Boil 2-3 cups water with some salt. Switch off the heat and immediately add the spinach.
Blanch them in the water for 5 minutes.
Drain and immediately place the spinach in cold water for 3-4 minutes. So that it maintains the bright green colour in gravy.
Drain again and along with green chilies, make a smooth puree in a grinder or blender.
Heat oil in a kadai/handi. Add caraway seeds and garlic in it. Saute for a minute or two till raw smell of garlic disappears.
Pour spinach puree in it and keep stirring for 3 minutes. Add tomato puree and fold nicely.
Add turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt in it. Fry for 5 minutes on medium heat now.
Add 1 cup of warm water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat now and cook on simmer for 7-8 minutes, cook till the gravy is reduced by half.
Lower the heat now, add garam masala powder, fresh cream and butter in it. Keep stirring for a minutes. Switch off the heat now.
Arrange the koftas in a serving dish. Pour the hot gravy over it. Sprinkle little fresh cream on the top and serve hot.

This delectable dish goes well with steamed rice, jeera rice, pulao, phulkas, parathas or naan anything as you like.

Here is an interesting way to make out karela without deep frying. I love 'Karela' or bitter gourd, so when I came accross 'Karela Subzi' at Anjana Chaturbedi's Space, "Maayeka" and I loved this yummy stir fried spicy bitter gourd. Karela helps diabetic patients to regulate the blood sugar level. So, here is the very easy and simple yummy recipe of bitter gourd:

100 gms Bitter Gourd
1/4th Raw Mango
1 tsp Whole Fennel Seeds
1&1/2 tsps Pouned Fennel Seeds
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Dried Mango Powder
2 tbsps + 1 tbsp Mustard Oil
Salt to taste

Wash and slice bitter gourds in medium thick roundals. Marinate with 1 tsp salt, keep covered for 30 minutes. Wash them well and squeeze them well. Set aside.

Peel and grate raw mango. Keep it aside.

Heat 2 tbsps mustard oil in a pan or wok. Add fennel seeds in it. Saute for a 30-40 seconds, till it turns to golden. Add turmeric powder and bitter gourd pieces in it. Saute for a minute.

Add grated raw mango and mix nicely. Cover and cook on low heat till done. Keep stirring in between, so that those will not stick and burn at the buttom.

While done, add red chilli powder, coriander powder, dried mango powder and sugar in it. Adjust salt a little. Pour 1 tbsp oil now. Cook uncovered for another 2-3 minutes on low heat.

Best served with dal and rice or with Indian flat breads.
