Potato -Methi Balls in Tomato Gravy




Ingredients:

For the Potato Methi Balls :

1 cup fresh Fenugreek Leaves,washed and chopped,
2 boiled and peeled medium sized Potatoes,
1 tsp Corn flour,
1 tsp Coriander -Cumin Powder,
½ tsp red chili powder,
1tsp Sugar Powder(optional ),
Oil for deep-frying,
Salt to taste.

For the Tomato Gravy :
4 Tomatoes, Pureed( for making Puree, boil the tomato withe little water, when boiled and remove the skin and mash it using hand blender.) 1 Onion, Chopped finely ,
1tsp Garlic Paste,
1/4tsp Chili Powder,
¼ tsp Garam Masala,
1/2 tsp of Cumin Powder,
1 tbsp Oil ,
Salt to taste

Method:

For the Potato Methi Balls :
Mash the boiled Potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add chopped Methi leaves to the Potatoes and all the other ingredients and mix well . Divide into balls, about 3 cms in diameter. Heat Oil in a Kadai and fry them till they turn golden brown. Remove on a brown paper and keep aside.

For the Gravy :
Heat Oil in a Kadhai, add Onions and fry till they turn translucent. Add Garlic paste, Tomato puree and cook till the moisture evaporates. Add red chili powder , garam masala and cumin powder to it. Let it come to a boil and add salt. Cook it until gravy is medium thick. Turn off the heat.

Now, Remove gravy to a serving dish and add Potato-Methi balls to it, Potato-Methi balls will turn little soft as they start absorbing gravy . Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve with Hot Puris or Rice.
Just remember to do not add potaot Methi balls to gravy while it is too hot, this way it will break balls and the whole dish will be spoiled. Add Potato Methi balls when the gravy is not so hot.
