    4 boiled eggs
    250g minced chicken
    2 small potatoes, boiled and mashed
    Bread crumbs for frying
    1 slice of bread, soaked and squeezed out
    3 tbsp coriander leaves
    ¼ tsp pepper
    1 tsp garam masala
    1 tsp cumin powder
    Salt to taste
    1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
    1 tsp ginger, finely chopped
    2 green chillies, finely chopped
    Oil for deep frying


  • Pour oil into a pan
  • As the oil gets heated, start making the batter
  • 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
  • Roll the kofta in bread crumbs
  • The kofta is now ready to go in for deep frying
  • Put the kofta in the pan
  • Fry it for a while
  • Tip: Make sure that the kofta is not fried too dark. It should turn golden in color
