    2                    Boiled Potatoes
  100      Grams         Paneer
    2      Tbsp          Cauliflower Florets
    2      Tbsp          Cornflour
    1      Tsp           Finely Chopped Green Chillies
                         Salt -- To Taste
    3      Tbsp          Oil
    1      C             Boiled Onion Paste
    1      C             Boiled Carrots
      1/4  C             Soaked Raisins
    1      Tbsp          Ginger Paste
    1      Tbsp          Garlic Paste
    1      Tsp           Red Chilli Powder
      1/2  Tsp           Garam Masala
      3/4  C             Cashewnut Paste
                         Oil -- For Deep-Frying
                         Cream -- Optional
                         Chopped Coriander -- For Garnish
 
 Grate the boiled potatoes, grate the paneer and add to the boiled potatoes,
 mix in the finely chopped green chillies salt and the corn flour. Mix
 really well and make into small round balls. Grate the carrots and mix the
 raisins into them. Make an indent into the potato balls and stuff a little
 of the carrot and raisin mix into it. Reform the potato ball in your hand
 making sure that you leave no holes! Deep fry all the balls until golden
 brown. Leave aside.
 
 Gravy:
  
 Take a tablespoon of oil in a heavy based pan, add the boiled onion paste
 cook until the onions are a little pink. Add the ginger and garlic paste to
 the oinions and saute for a while. Add the tumeric and chilli powder and
 cook for a while until the masala has mixed well into the paste. Now add
 the cashewnut paste to this and cook. Keep stirring so that it doesn't
 stick to the bottom of the pan. Add about a 1/2 cup of water and cook on
 very low heat for about 10 mins. Add salt taste and mix well. Add the fried
 koftas to the gravy. Finish with fresh cream drizzled over the top
 (optional) and add a little chopped corinder to garnish. Serve hot with
 naan or rice.
 This dish was supposedly created for the beautiful queen Noor Jahan. I am
 not sure if this is true or not but it does taste very nice!
