sweet potato kofta curry - Side dish for rice / roti - Healthy side dish recipe

I like sweet potato however the rest of my family doesn't so I always look for some alternatives to include sweet potato into our diet. So I Sneak it in as burger patty or stuffing to wrap etc.. As you notice in all these dish Sweet potato is one of the main ingredients not just by itself. Sometime I am successful in hiding but sometimes not. Since kids loved the burger patty I thought of sneaking it in the gravy for Roti. 

For kofta:

Sweet potato - 2 medium 
Oats flour - 1/2 cup
Green chillies - 2 (chopped finely)
Curry Leaves - 10
Coriander leaves - 2 tablespoon (finely chopped)
Salt to taste
Garlic paste - 2 teaspoon
Ginger - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Onion - 1 medium (chopped finely)
Red chillies - 1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seed powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil for shallow frying


Onion (big) - 1 cup (finely chopped)
Onion (small) / Shallots - 1/2 cup (Finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 2 Medium (chopped roughly)
Garlic - 6 pods
Ginger - 1 inch
Peanut - 2 tablespoon
Sesame seeds - 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon (adjust to your spice level or spice level of the powder you have)
Coriander powder - 1.5 teaspoon
Subji masala - 1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 3 teaspoon



Cook the sweet potato with salt and mash it. Add oats and mix well
Add all other ingredients except oil. Make tight dough. Make small balls.
Make small balls. You can either bake it or fry it in kuzhi paniyaram. I have used kuzhi paniyaram pan. For that add 1/8 spoon of oil in each spot. Place the balls 
Cook till it is brown and turn it over.  And cook on the other side . Remove it and keep it aside. Repeat the process till all the dough is done
For baking apply oil around the ball and bake till it is brown in color


Heat the pan and add 2 teaspoon of oil. Add garlic and ginger. Fry till it is brown in color. Add onion and fry till transparent. Add tomatoes and fry till mushy. Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, Coriander powder, Subji masala. 
 Fry till raw smell released. Add roasted peanut, sesame seeds. Switch it off and let it cool down. Grind to smooth paste.Heat the pan and add 1 teaspoon of oil and add cumin seeds and let it crackle. 
Add 2- 3 cups of water with required salt. Let it boil.Add kofta and let boil to desired consistency. 
Add kofta and let boil to desired consistency. Add coriander leaves and mix well.
