Vegetarian Kofta Balls (Tomato Sauce Sep. Recipe)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PSU Lioness

Recipe from "The Higher Taste" that I haven't tried yet. It sounds very delicious though. The homemade tomato sauce is also listed as a separate recipe.

When I buy kofta balls from Govindas in Brisbane they are much lighter in texture than when I use the recipe from Higher Taste. I feel I need to add some baking powder to original recipe or otherwise use Self Raisi g flour - any suggestions, before I m!e the next batch??????

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a wok or 2-quart saucepan.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Roll 24 balls, 1" in diameter.
  3. Place as many balls in the oil as possible, leaving enough room for them to float comfortably; fry over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the kofta is rich golden brown.
  4. Drain in colander.
  5. Place the kofta in the tomato sauce (separate recipe posted or use your own) for 5 minutes before serving.
  6. If after sitting the kofta soaks up most of the sauce, add a little water to produce more liquid.
  7. Serve with cooked spaghetti.
