Tofu Cabbage Kofta = Tofta?

Follow Me on Pinterest

Presenting the tofu kofta.
Inspired by:

What you need:

1/2 a medium cabbage
2 packets extra firm tofu
3 green chillies
3 pods of garlic
1.5 inch piece of ginger mashed
1 cup chickpea flour (besan)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds ground up
oil of choice (I used Coconut oil)
chili powder to taste

To do:
  1. Shred the cabbage
  2. chop the green chilies finely
  3. mash up the ginger and garlic
  4. grate the extra firm tofu in a food processor or a hand grater
  5. mix all of the above with 1 cup besan, salt, ground cumin, turmeric, chili powder and a little oil
  6. It will look something like this
  7. Heat oven to 350 F
  8. On a large baking tray, spread some aluminum foil and grease it with a little oil
  9. Arrange the kofta balls and slide it in the oven

  10. Cook until done. Time depends on the oven. It took me nearly 45 minutes. Next time, I might set the oven temperature to 375.
  11. Should look like this when done:
  12. Enjoy with either the traditional kofta sauce or in a pita with other veggies, like a falafel; or just eat it as is!
