  • 2 medium Onions
  • 1/4 cup - Channa daal (gram lentils)
  • 1 tsp - chilli powder
  • 1 cup - Yoghurt
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 5 Green chillies

  • 1/2 tsp - salt
  • 5 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 tsps - kewra water
  • 3 tablespoons - Sunflower oil
  • Flour for dusting
  • How to Make Nargisee Kofte:

    1. Keeping a tablespoon of the minced mutton aside, put everything apart from the eggs, the kewra and the oil in a saucepan with 3 cups of water.
    2. Cook until the daal is soft and the water has dried.
    3. Put the uncooked mince with the cooked mixture.
    4. Add the kewra (if desired) and grind all of this into a smooth paste without adding any water.
    5. The uncooked meat binds the mixture together.
    6. Shell all the eggs and dust them with flour.
    7. Divide the meat/daal mixture into 5 equal portions.
    8. Flatten each portion in the palm.
    9. Place an egg in the centre and wrap the paste around the egg until it is completely enclosed.
    10. Heat the oil in a medium sized frying pan, put in the meatballs and fry them until they are brown on all sides.
    11. When cool, cut the meatballs into halves, and serve with the eggs facing up.
    12. Serve with Roti or Nan.
