To make the koftas:
Boil potatoes, mash while still hot. Mash the paneer & mix well with the mashed potatoes.

Add dhaniya powder, black pepper powder, juice of lime, salt & egg (optional). Mix well.

Add cornflour, mix & make small balls of the batter. Each kofta (ball) should be the side of a table tennis ball.

Deep fry the koftas in oil until they turn brownish. Place on absorbing sheet/paper towel to remove excess oil. Arrange the kofta's in a dish.

For making the gravy:
Grind tomatoes, yogurt, mint & cilantro together in a blender to make a puree.

Heat 3 tbs oil in a skillet. Add mustard seeds & allow them to splutter. Add cumin seeds, onions, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder & saute until onions fry well.

Add the pureed tomato mixture, green peas, dhaniya powder & garam masala powder. Mix well.

Cook until the gravy thickens or reaches consistency of your choice.

Pour the gravy over the kofta's (arranged in a dish).

Let it set for at least 5 minutes.

Serve with Jeera Rice / Rotis.
