Cabbage kofta // No onion, garlic , Vegan ,Indian gravy recipe

  Cabbages have a whole range of uses in my kitchen .i always reserve some for some quick recipes too .But then I also get tired of them at the end of the season.Then comes the idea of making cabbage koftas and I fall in love with this veggie all over again.The recipe that I am sharing today is a no onion ,garlic recipe and I prefer this taste of the gravy ,without onion or garlic to the regular onion garlic gravy.It has a very different home cooked taste that can please any taste bud.

The cabbage has been grated  and mixed with salt ,and left for sometime.It is then squeezed well to remove all the water..The lack of onions and garlic in the gravy has been compensated by the use of magaz(cucumber seeds). Tomato puree further lends it the very smooth texture.


The koftas can be fried and kept in a closed container in the refrigerator.It should be put in a simmering gravy and the flame should be switched off .This has to be kept covered for about 15 minutes before serving for the best taste.I generally fry them in small sizes as the become little bigger in size in the gravy..
