This is the recipe to make the kofta (chickpea flour vegetable dumplings) for use in a stew type preparation.  However, you can also have them alone-in that case, make sure to cook them a bit longer ( so the inside is done) and serve alongside a chutney (mango would be perfect!)


  • 2 cups shredded carrot
  • 5 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1/3 cup cashew bits
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1.25 cups chickpea flour
  •  oil for shallow frying


  1. Steam carrot and cabbage until almost cooked but still crisp (about 10 minutes.)  Let cool.
  2. When cool, combine in rest of ingredients.  Add about 1/4 to 1/3 cup water to bind together.  Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile heat oil.  Shape mixture into balls and fry on each side until golden brown.  Enjoy in kofta curry!
