  • Blender
  • Large nonstick skillet
  • Box grater
  • Medium saucepan


Cook the potato

Peel and dice the russet potato(es) into bite-size pieces. Add diced potato to a medium saucepan and cover with 1 inch salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

Start the kofta

Peel and chop the onion(s). Peel and slice the garlic. Peel and mince 2 tsp (4 tsp) ginger. Slice green beans into rounds. Peel and grate the carrot(s) on the largest side of a box grater. Once the potatoes are fork-tender, add grated carrot and sliced green beans to the saucepan with the potatoes and cook for 1 minute. Drain the cooked vegetables and transfer to a large bowl.

Start the malai sauce

Return the empty saucepan to medium heat with 2 tsp (4 tsp) olive oil. Add chopped onion, sliced garlic, and minced ginger. Cook until vegetables are softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the tomato powder, curry powder, coconut milk, and ½ tsp (1 tsp) salt, and bring sauce to a simmer. Cook until the malai sauce is slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Form the kofta

Add the garbanzo bean flour and ¼ tsp (½ tsp) salt to the large bowl with the cooked vegetables. Lightly mash the mixture and form into 6 (12) patties about 1 inch thick.

Sear the kofta

Heat 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potato kofta and cook until browned and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the seared potato kofta to a plate.

Finishing touches

Return the skillet to medium heat with 1 tsp (2 tsp) olive oil. Add spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer malai sauce to a blender and blend on low until smooth. Divide malai sauce between plates and top with sautéed spinach and potato kofta. Top the potato malai kofta with tomato chutney. Enjoy!
