How to Make Lauki Ke Kofte

  • Grate the lauki and squeeze out water from it completely. Store the water in a bowl separately.
  • To this grated lauki, add grated ginger, chopped green chillies, chopped coriander leaves, salt and red chilli powder and mix well.
  • Now add besan to bind and make round or oval balls. (You can apply oil to your palm before making balls to avoid koftas sticking to your hands.)
  • Deep fry the koftas to a golden brown colour.
  • Method For Gravy:
  • Heat 3-4 tbsps of oil in a heavy bottom vessel.
  • Put dalchini, crushed elaichi, tej patta and cloves and let it splutter in oil, then add green chillies, garlic, ginger and onions and cover the vessel for a few minutes on medium flame.
  • Keep stirring in between and cook till onions turn brown in colour and get blended well.
  • Now add tomatoes, salt, turmeric, red chilli, jeera and coriander powders and mix well.
  • Cover the vessel again.
  • Keep stirring at intervals and check if the gravy is even and well blended.
  • You can add the extracted water from lauki now and let the gravy boil.
  • Sprinkle garam masala.
  • Before serving, add the koftas and garnish with coriander leaves.
