300 gms (1/2 lb.) ground meat, washed and strained,
4 tbsp sattu or roasted besan* (we don't get sattu here so i used the latter),
1 tsp. garammasala powder,
1/2 tsp. chilli powder,

Knead well, make into round balls and keep aside.
When half done, add 2 large tomatoes and fry till gravy becomes mushy and dark brown.
Puree in blender.
Lower heat to simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes, then turn koftas over.
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, add the ground masala from stage 2 & 3-4 Tbsp. yogurt. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, add 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder and hot water if necessary.
Remove from heat and serve with anything, or as a stand alone dish.
