  • 1 cup (100g) shredded kale 
  • 1 large onion, finely diced 
  • 2 tablespoons mild flavoured oil

Place shredded cabbage and kale in a colander and sprinkle with the salt. Put to one side for 10 minutes to release water. 

Finely chop the cauliflower into 5mm pieces. Place in a large mixing bowl. 

Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a frypan and cook the onion and garlic until translucent. Add the cumin and coriander. Cook for just 30 seconds, then remove from the heat. Add to the bowl with the cauliflower. 

Squeeze the water from the cabbage and kale and place into the mixing bowl with the cauliflower. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the cooking oil. Mix well. Shape tablespoons of mixture into balls.  

Place a medium sized pot on the stove and heat the cooking oil. Add the kofta in 3 batches. Use 2 forks to gently turn the balls in the oil, ensuring they cook evenly to a deep golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
