Tip

This recipe was adapted from a book called 'Indian cooking'  by Savitri Chowdhary. It's been a family favourite for years.

If sauce is too watery - remove the meatballs and vegetables and add a few extra minutes cooking time.

If not saucy enough - add a little extra water at the end to the sauce. (It's may have less sauce than what you may be used to with a meatball dish but it works as it is very flavoursome)

    Very tasty dish. Meatballs were quite wet due to the capsicum moisture, I pan cooked them, just my preference and turned out good. Same with rice, stove top to make sure. Thought sauce a bit salty, hang back to season last.

  • This recipe was wonderful, I

    This recipe was wonderful, I really enjoyed it, but at the end of the cooking time my rice wasn't cooked.  Any idea what went wrong? I fried my koftas rather than steamed and it was delicious.  Really lovely flavours.  Thanks!
