Ingredients :

  • Spaghetti 
  • Potato
  • Onions
  • Beans
  • Carrot
  • Capsicum
  • Tomatoes
  • Tomato - chilli sauce
  • Ginger - garlic paste
  • salt
  • Jeera powder
  • Chilli powder
  • Oil
  • lemon juice (opt.)
  • Corriander leaves (opt.)

Method :

for koftas : 

Pressure cook Potatoes and mash it well and keep it ready ...
finely chop onions and in a bowl add the mashed potatoes + onions + salt + chilli powder and mix it well ....

In a plate have some bread crumbs ...take a small ball size of potato - onion mix and roll it in the bread crumbs ...and either you can deep fry the balls or you can use the Paniyaram pan ... (I used the paniyaram pan ...ensure the pan is in medium heat ...) and make the koftas till u get golden brown colour ....and keep it aside ...
    for gravy part : 

    finely chop all the veggies (Carrot + beans + capsicum + onions + tomatoes )
    heat a kadai and add oil , once it is hot add ginger - garlic paste and saute it for few secs.  ..then add onions + salt and fry well then add tomatoes, cook it well ...then add all the chopped veggies + jeera powder + chilli powder + and little water and allow the veggies to cook well ...once it is ready , switch off the flame and add lemon juice + corrainder leaves and mix it well...keep little gravy aside and then mix gently ...the koftas to the gravy and keep it aside..make sure u don't break the koftas...
      For spaghetti :

      I took some 10 to 12 sticks and broke it into half ...and in a pan add water and little salt + oil + spaghetti sticks  and allow it to boil well  ..till the spaghetti gets cooked ..then drain the excess water if any and can be used in making the above gravy part also ...rinse the spaghetti in cold water and set aside ....now mix the spaghetti and the little gravy well ...in a plate place this spaghetti and add the kofta gravy on top and serve it imm.
