  • Add 2 cups of water to the gravy and bring to a boil (you can add the bottle gourd juice as well).
  • Add the fried koftas to the curry and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  • The koftas tend to crumble if you boil them too much in the gravy. So you can add them just before you're ready to serve the curry.
  • Serve hot with roti.
