Mutton Kola Urundai / Mutton Kofta

For people who live in this part of the world, did you enjoy an extra hour of sleep yesterday? I got up at 6 o clock and few minutes later, I looked at my mobile where it said 5:05 AM.  I was so happy, that I got this extra hour all to myself.  Being a mom of a 3 year old, this additional hour all to myself means a lot. I bet many moms would agree with me on this.

Today’s recipe is Mutton Kola Urundai/ Mutton Kofta. This is my mom’s specialty. For some reason, I don’t have this recipe written in my recipe book and every time I want to make this Kola Urundai, I would give her a call and she will be more than happy to tell the recipe to me. I like to hear it from her rather than looking at the recipe book.  Another such recipe which I like to hear from mom is Mutton Chukka. I will post that recipe soon.


1. Mutton Keema / Minced mutton – 2 cups
2. Grated Coconut – ½ cup
3. Roasted gram / pottukadalai – ½ cup (grounded)
4. Green Chilli – 4 -5
5. Saunf / Soambu – 1 tablespoon
6. Garam Masala – 1 teaspoon
7. Salt – as needed
8. Onions – 1 finely chopped
9. Cilantro – 1/4th cup finely chopped


1. Grind the grated coconut, green chilli, saunf ,garam masala and salt to a fine paste with very little water  using a mixer/ blender.
2. Add the ground meat to the blender/ mixer and grind it until all the ground masala mixes well with the meat.
3. Also add the finely chopped onions and pulse it a couple of times. This step is really optional. You can add the chopped onions to the ground meat in the next step if you do not want to pulse the onions.
4. Transfer the meat to a bowl. Add the roasted gram powder little by little. Do not add too much as it will make the koftas very dry. The meat mixture should still be a little moist.
5. Now add the chopped cilantro and mix it well.
6. Make kofta balls out of it. Rubbing little oil in your palms will definitely help this process. This measurement will give you approximately 25 koftas.
7. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry till golden brown.

Serve it as an appetizer.
