Cauliflower Kofta with Creamy Tomato Sauce
Instructions
Make Cauliflower Kofta:
  1. Steam or microwave the cauliflower until tender, about 3~5 minutes. Lightly mash and set aside.
  2. Heat 2tsp oil in a pan, add onion, ginger and garlic; cook till the onions are translucent, about 3~4 minutes.
  3. Next add the mashed cauliflower and mashed potato. Stir in turmeric, red chili powder, ground cumin, coriander and salt. Mix well and cook for 2~3 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool slightly.
  4. Coarsely grind the chickpeas into a coarse paste. Remove into a mixing bowl and add the cauliflower mixer, chopped cilantro and adjust the seasoning. Add the chickpea flour (or flour) and mix well. Try to form a ball with the mixture, if it does not come together add a little more flour.
  5. Take 1 tbsp of mixture and make koftas.
  6. Koftas can be baked in a preheated 400°F oven (spray them with cooking spray) or they can be deep fried. I fried them in a aebleskiver (appe) pan for a low fat option. Take them out onto paper towel lined plate. Serve Warm with the creamy tomato sauce.
Creamy Tomato Sauce:

  3. Stir in heavy cream and let the sauce heat through, about 1~2 minutes.
