  • Put the minced chicken on a plate
  • Add the potatoes
  • Add the garlic
  • Add the ginger
  • Add the green chillies
  • Add the salt
  • Add the cumin powder
  • Add the garam masala
  • Add the pepper
  • Add a little bit of the coriander leaves
  • Mix the ingredients first with hand and then put them into a mixer grinder
  • After a quick spin, the ingredients should form a fine paste
  • Add the soaked and squeezed bread to the paste
  • Sprinkle the mixture with some more of the coriander leaves
  • Mix well
  • Once the mixture is ready, grease your palms with oil
  • Pinch out a portion of the batter
  • Pat the pinched out batter on both sides till it attains the shape of a patty
  • Put a boiled egg in the middle
  • Cover the egg on all sides with the patted out mixture
  • Tip: Make sure that the egg is covered completely on all sides
  • Dip the nargisi kofta in a bowlful of beaten egg
  • Tip: Dipping the kofta into egg is optional since the batter is moist already
