Everything Kofta / Cabbage, zuchinni, carrot and lauki Kofta curry

I could not think of any better title then this for this dish. It has cabbage, zucchini carrot and Lauki (bottle gourd so came up with this name. If you have any other name let me know I am happy to give that name. I was tempted to add Beetroot also but then I stay back cause it was already too much vegetables for me. But nothing goes waste that's why I made everything and took whatever needed for diner and froze leftover koftas so next time just have to make a gravy and I am done. With this humble vegetables I didn't want to make any simple curry , after all its Kofta so I make nice curry too. Shall we started?

Ingredients for Kofta :
1 cup shredded cabbage, zucchini carrot and Lauki (bottle gourd)
4 tbsp Chickpea flour (besan)
1 tsp carom seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp grated ginger and garlic
1 green chili finely chopped
salt to taste
oil for frying


Mix everything and make koftas  and deep fry it.
Take it outside and keep it on paper towel till you make gravy for it.

Ingredients for curry:

1 big onion, finely chopped
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 medium sized tomatoes, blanched and pureed
1-2 green chilies, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp cashew powder
1/4 cup Evaporated milk  or cream
Finely chopped coriander(cilantro) leaves
Oil as required
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, bay leaf and saute for 10 seconds.
Add chopped onion, green chilies and saute till the onions turn transparent.
Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell disappears.
Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder, cashew powder, Tomato puree and salt.
Fry, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes, or till the oil begins to separate from the masala.
Add  2 cups of water to the masala and let the gravy boil for 5-10 minutes.
Add 1/4 cup Evaporated milk and cook for 2 minutes.

 At the time of serving put koftas in serving bowl and pour gravy on top of it.
Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with chapatis, rotis or Naan.
