2 medium boiled potatoes
100 grams paneer
2 tablespoons cauliflower florets
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon finely chopped green chiles
1 teaspoon salt -- to taste
3 tablespoons oil
1 cup boiled onion paste
1 cup boiled carrots
1/4 cup soaked raisins
1 tablespoon ginger paste
1 tablespoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon red chile powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
3/4 cup cashew nut paste
3 cup oil -- for deep-frying
1 cup cream -- optional
1 bunches chopped coriander -- for garnish

Preparation / Directions:

Grate the boiled potatoes, grate the paneer and add to the boiled potatoes, mix in the finely chopped green chiles 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 sauté for a while. Add the tumeric and chile powder and cook for a while until the masala has mixed well into the paste. Now add the cashew nut 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
