Anyway BACK to my recipe here’s a list of ingredients you will need.This easily serves 6 .

3 bunches Palak/Spinach, chopped
1 cup Milk
3 Onions, finely chopped
5 Potatoes
4 slices of Bread
1/4 cup Green Peas
1 inch Cinnamon
2-3 Green Cardamom
3 Green Chillies
1 inch Ginger, minced
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Turmaric Powder
1/2 tbsp Amchur/Dry Mango Powder
1 tbsp Garam Masala
2 tbsp Cashew nuts,ground into a paste
2 tbsp Butter/Oil/Ghee
2-3 tbsp of Gram Flour
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Method:
For Koftas:

Pressure cook potatoes,peel and mash thoroughly.
Soak bread in water, squeeze and add to the potatoes.
Mix with 2 tbsp of the finely cut onion, chillies, cooked green peas, coriander leaves, garam masala, salt, amchur powder, cashew paste and small amount of finely chopped palak.
Mix well and prepare small balls.
Make a paste of the gram flour and water.
Dip these balls in the gram flour paste and deep fry in hot oil.

Keep aside.

Now the Gravy:

Heat a tsp of oil in a pan and fry the palak with a little sugar added to it(this apparently is to retain the green colour)

Sprinkle little water if necessary.Cook until soft.
Once cool grind to a smooth paste.
Heat butter in a pan and add cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.
After 1 minutes add the chopped onions and fry till it turns transparent.
To this add ginger, ground palak with milk, salt, chilli powder, amchur, turmaric, and garam masala.
Mix well and cook it till the gravy thickens in a medium flame.
Add Koftas just prior to serving.
