MALAI KOFTAS (SOUTH ASIAN MEATBALLS & VEGETABLE BALLS)

2 yellow squash
2 zuchini squash
1 white or yellow onion
2 cups chickpea (garbonzo) flour
1 tblsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cayenne
salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg (optional)

Heat oven to 425 or so. In large bowl, grate the squashes and
onion, add spices, add optional egg.

Mix chickpea flour till breaddough consistency. Form kofta "dough"
into 1 inch diameter balls. Place on cookie sheet, bake for 25
minutes or
so.

While cooking: Mix Malai sauce.


Malai Sauce:

4 large tomatoes
1 hot chili (serrano or Jap). Remove seeds if wimpy.
1.5 inch fresh ginger. or full teaspoon powdered.
2 cups cream

Puree above in blender. Heat 4 tablespoons peanut oil in saucepan.


Mix:

2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp paprika

Add the above spices all at once to hot oil for 1 minute. Add
tomato puree to spices. Add 1 more cup cream to spices and the
puree. Boil.

Reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes. Add half of the cooked Kofta
balls. Simmer another 10 to soften them.

Serve with brown rice, chapatis, vinegar soaked onions and chilies.


Notes:

Slightly wet hands when forming Kofta balls.

Freeze other half of Kofta balls and use with next batch of Malai
to save time.

Keep Kofta balls seperate from Malai sauce till needed. (They
absorb the liquid from sauce)

Milk can be substituted for some of the cream. Have not tried soy
milk.

Add 1 drop red and 1 drop yellow food coloring to vinegar to make
reasonably authentic orange onions (a la Akbar's).
