For the sauce:

  • Mix all the ingredients for the koftas in a bowl till combined and smooth.
  • Shape into balls and pop on a lined baking tray in a 200C Fan / 220C preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes.
  • Heat up garlic oil and then add in the mustard seeds until they start to snap, crackle and pop! Then add the red pepper and allow to soften a little.
  • Add gluten-free flour, curry powder, chilli flakes and minced ginger and mix in.
  • Follow this with the coconut milk and curry leaves, allow to simmer and thicken for a few minutes.
  • Pop in a handful of spinach and allow it to wilt, then stir in some yoghurt to make it lovely and creamy.
  • Finally, add your koftas back in and serve with rice and gluten-free naan. Enjoy!
