From Mollie Katzen's "Vegetable Heaven:" "Koftas are little patties or balls made from ground or mashed vegetables. In traditional Indian cooking, they are usually deep-fried, and served in a creamy, savory sauce. In this recipe, the koftas are shaped into patties, similar to falafel, and sautéed or baked, instead of deep-fried. These delicious little koftas are also quite pretty–a deep shade of golden yellow, punctuated by nuggets of bright green peas. For a great lunch, serve them in pita, with minced tomatoes and Mediterranean Yogurt."
