Cheese Cauliflower Kofta Curry

I don't like kofta curry but like to have fried koftas.When ever I make kofta curry I add koftas just before I serve so that koftas will stay crisp.Generally i make kofta's with bottle gourd or potato. I saw this cheese cauliflower koftas in Raks Kitchen book marked but didn't get time to make them.When jaya announced bloggers marathon for Rak's kitchen then I decided to make this delicious cheese cauliflower koftas for her event. They are realy just melting in the mouth. Raji of raks kitchen is one of my buddy blogger who is alway attracts me with her beautiful and bright pictures and her traditional tamilnadu recipes. Thank you so much Raji for this mouth melting kofta recipe we just enjoyed it.I fallowed the recipe with very little changes here I go..

Love this kofta recipe. Could you just clarify Point No 1 for making the kofta. You say that you mash the potatoes and make sure there is water in potato mash. Does that mean that you keep the potatoes moist?

I adore kofta curries, and always order them when we eat out. But it hardly ever is good. This one looks fabulous, specially the cheesy surprise in the middle.
