Quinoa Galouti Kebabs | Veg Galouti Kebab

Galouti means Galawat which means melt in the mouth and so the ingredients used in these kebabs all need to be really fine and smoothly minced. There are a lot of versions of these kebabs including veg and non veg and I have innovated my veg version of delicious melt in the mouth Quinoa Galouti Kebabs.
Quinoa Galouti Kebabs is a delicious and a rich veg version of a kebab recipe which calls for boiled quinoa, boiled yam (suran) minced together with kebab spices and a green paste. I call it a green paste which is prepared from coriander some mint leaves, brown onions with richness of cashews and fresh cream. Kebab masala is now easily available in the market so I prefer using the ready packs. However, one can also chose to make it at home. The magic to my recipe is adding the smoky flavor to the kebabs. Just like any tadka is incomplete without garlic, similarly kebabs are incomplete without the smoky flavor of coal. Galouti Kebabs are never deep fried as they are so soft and melt in the mouth and are usually cook or fried in a pan preferably non stick pan with little oil or ghee. Lesser the oil or ghee used is better to keep the kebabs intact.

Zafrani Kumbh Kofta | Mushroom Kofta in Yellow Gravy

Zafrani Kumbh Kofta is one dish I prepared giving it my twist where I’ve used mushrooms stuffed with mashed potato which gives the stuffing a binding and the richness of grated paneer and raisins added to it. Usually, Indian versions of Kofta is prepared and served with gravy made of onions and tomatoes which is normally on a sweeter side. However, Zafrani Kumbh Kofta calls for stuffed mushrooms prepared and cooked in yellow gravy which has raisins added to it which giving the dish richness and sweetness. The gravy for this dish is a rich gravy which calls for cashews, cream and curd. Another and most important ingredient adding to the richness is Zafran which is also known as Saffron or Kesar in Hindi which is mostly used in Indian and Mughlai cuisine.

This is a perfect recipe one may want to follow for a Yellow Gravy / Yellow Curry and also for everyone who loves restaurant food. You can say it is a restaurant style Kumbh Kofta. This recipe for yellow gravy can be used as a base to prepare any dish with paneer, stuffed capsicum, mushroom mutter and even chicken. The garam masala used in this recipe is basically same masala that is used to prepare Korma/Qorma dishes. If you have the Korma masala pack at home, feel free to use it else you can read on to my recipe below for the home made masala.

Suran ki Sabzi | Suran Masala

Suran ki Sabzi | Suran Masala is a delicious dish which calls for a very few basic ingredients available at home. You can use boiled suran or just cook it along with the masalas. I prefer to cook it with the masalas as it wonderfully absorbs all the delicious flavours. Suran sabzi is a perfect substitute for non – veg and so I do add some chicken masala to this which enhances the taste of this dish, one can also choose to add pav bhaji masala or any garam masala. Ofcourse, you need to be a little careful while peeling the yam, I prefer wearing gloves however, one can choose to apply some oil to the palms before handling suran.
