Malai Kofta with Aloo Methi and Carrot Pickle

Kofta - a dish originating in the Middle East - are a type of highly seasoned meatball, but vegetarian versions exist and can be made from pulses, vegetables or paneer cheese. Here we’re making kofta using mashed potato, grated carrot and paneer flavoured with green chilli, mustard and coriander. On the side there’s aloo methi - potatoes cooked with lots of methi (fenugreek) leaf which is the herb that gives Indian restaurants their distinctive ‘curry-like’ aroma. There’s also a fragrant pilau rice, a crunchy fresh cabbage salad flavoured with lemon juice and nigella seeds and a fiery carrot pickle.
