Protein-rich soya granules make a very versatile ingredient, which is liked by young and old alike. It fits well into a lot of dishes, from upmas to subzis. Here is a strikingly flavourful preparation of soya granules and mashed potatoes made into mint-flavoured koftas, which are dunked in a tomato-based gravy that is uniquely flavoured with fennel seeds powder, made creamier by adding milk, and enhanced with mint leaves.

I made this yesterdy evening - so, so delicious! I swapped the potato for sweet potato and baked the koftas on 220°C for 25 minutes, spraying them with oil and turning them once, so they got nicly browned crispy edges and tops and bottoms. Will definitely make again! The only thing I have to criticise is portion size - in no way would this have been enough for four people. Then again, I didn''t serve it with anything else except for rotis; as part of a meal with dal, rice and greens it probably goes further...

   Hi Naurael, As you served only this with rotis , the portion size would have been less. We are happy you loved the taste, do try more and more recipes and let us know how you enjoyed them. Happy Cooking !!

Soya granules have a distinct taste that i generally don't like but in these koftas that taste has magically vanished. The gravy is delicious and the taste of mint adds a unique freshness to the otherwise traditional punjabi gravy. Since there is soya in the koftas it also up's the protein quotient of the dish.
