  • Make a small slit in the chilies without disturbing the stem and remove the membranes as these chilies are spicier (You can skip this step if you don’t want to reduce the heat of these chilies). Soak the chilies in salt water for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook potato in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles. Once the pressure is released, allow it to cool and peel the potatoes.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash potatoes and mix the other ingredients except oil and chilies.
  • Remove the chilies from salt water and pat it dry.
  • Make small balls out of the potato mixture and keep a chili in the center. Seal the chili leaving the stem. Follow the same for the remaining chilies.

Recipe Notes

Adjust salt accordingly if the chilies are soaked in salt water.
Drain the water from the cooked potatoes completely before mashing. Incase if the kofta dough is very sticky, add extra corn flour.
