Shahi Jackfruit Kofta

These kofta's I made for my son's birthday for the first time and was a major hit. It won't take long time to make these & very easy.

Ingredients required:
For Koftas
1 tin green jackfruit
2 Med Potatoes
4 Tbsp Besan/Chana dal flour
3-4 Green Chillies finely chopped
2 Tbsp Cilantro finely chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

For gravy:
1/2 finely choppped onion
1 tomato finely chopped
10-15 Cashew nuts soaked in water
5-7 Almonds soaked in water
3-4 Tbsp Sour cream
3-4 Tbsp Heavy whipping cream
4-5 green chillies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp Oil
1 Tbsp Ghee/clarified butter
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp chopped Cilantro (Optional)

How to make:

Boil potatoes & drained jackfruit pieces. Squize out the water from jackfruit even after boiling to the maximum possible extent. In a bowl, mash both of them together. Add the chillies, salt & cilantro. Sprinkle the besan & make soft golf-ball sized balls. Heat oil in a kadhai. Deep fry the Koftas/balls in the hot oil & remove on a tissue paper.

In another kadhai/pan, heat the oil & ghee. Add the cumin seeds, chillies, onion, sprinkle the sugar & keep stirring till onions are soft. Add tomatoes, turmeric powder, salt. When the onion & tomatoes become very soft almost like paste add sour cream. Meanwhile make a thick paste of cashew & almonds. Add the paste of cashews & almonds. Add a cup fo water cover & let boil. Now in a serving bowl, arrange the koftas, pour the gravy on the koftas. Decorate with the heavy cream & cilantro.

Serve with rice, roti or parathas. Goes well with anything.
