SHAHI VEGETARIAN NARGISI KOFTA CURRY


Nargisi kofta curry is a lovely party dish loved by all. Vegetarians can make this version and enjoy too. I had tried out vegetarian Nargisi kababs for an event. They really looked so pretty and I thought why not serve these beauties with a shahi gravy. Everyone loved the curry to the core.


To make vegetarian Nargisi kababs select small oval shaped potatoes,boil and peel them. Cut them into two. Scoope out the center part (Size of a yolk) Mash it with some paneer adding a little salt and yellow food colour. Make round yolks with this. Place them in the hollow portion of the potato and join the two halves together. Now cover this potato with a mixture of ground soya granules which has been soaked and ground along with spices and soaked bread pieces for binding. Now fry the kofta and slice it. serve as a snack or with gravy.
