  9. Chopped Cashew Nuts 2 tbsp
  10. Chopped Raisins 2 tbsp
  • These are the TEN principal ingredients for making DASH-RATAN kofta. In addition to these ten ingredients some other masala and binding agent is required as given below
  1. Sattu ( Dry fried Gram Flour) 2tsp
  2. Chopped Green Chillies 2tsp
  3. Ginger Paste 2tsp
  4. Dry Fried  Jeera Powder 1tsp
  5. Garam Masala Powder 1tsp
  6. Salt & Sugar
  7. Ghee 1tsp
  8. Refined Oil
  9. 2 tsp Besan
In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients except the oil  and 2tsp Besan and mix them well with your hand. Make the Koftas -- big balls say 3 inches diameter . Next roll the koftas  in the Besan and then fry them slowly in a high flame in refined oil.

Now make the gravy in a conventional manner. I prefer the completely vegetarian way of making the gravy i.e without adding garlic and onion. Heat the oil and add the  chaunk of garama masala and bayleaf followed by ginger paste, red chilly powder, tomato puree, a little beaten curd followed by a paste of poppyseeds and cashew nuts. Saute' for a few minutes. Add salt and sugar and then a little water. Place your previously fried koftas on this gravy and bring them to boli for a while. Sprinkle fresh  coriander leaves , green chillies and ghee on top. Pour 2 tbsp milk. Serve with roti/ paratha/chapati
