I have always looked at meat balls in a sauce and wanted to create the same exact vegetarian or vegan version of it. So here goes:

Ingredients for the spinach balls:

1 cup of spinach finely chopped

1/2 cup potato cooked really well

Spices- turmeric, salt, cayenne, garam masala or curry powder, coriander and cumin seeds crushed-all 1/2 teaspoon

Rice flour- 1tablespoon

Oil for frying- any


Take a big bowl, add all your spices and mix well, add chopped up spinach and toss then throw in the well cooked potatoes and mix with your hands to make a dough. Let it rest in the fridge for a half hour. Once you take it out prior to frying them add 1 tablespoon of rice flour and mix well again. Rice flour gives you that golden brown surface.

Take a frying pan, add oil and you could either deep fry if you like it really golden brown or you could shallow fry and it still tastes delicious.

Ingredients for the Sauce:

Onions- 2 large chopped

1 tsp Ginger garlic paste or 1/2 inch of fresh ginger and 5 cloves of garlic

Green Chili- 2

Tomatoes- 4 diced


Salt to taste and 1 tsp of turmeric powder and curry powder


Place a pan under medium flame and saute ginger garlic in 1 tablespoon of oil and as soon as garlic starts to turn golden, throw in chopped onions, green chili’s and diced tomatoes along with the spices and salt and let it cook down with a lid to a pasty consistency. Blend this to a sauce with 1/4 cup water and cook for another 5 minutes until simmer and then transfer the spinach balls.

Garnish with cilantro!
