2 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro\coriander leaves
2 tablespoon Olive oil or Vegetable oil
11/2 tablespoon chick pea flour (besan) or 1/4 cup of bread crumbs

Method
Boil the vegetables,Potatoes separately. Peel and mash the potatoes.Squeeze out excess water from the boiled veggies and mix in the potatoes.The koftas may break if the veggies are watery.Mix in all the other ingredients except the oil.knead to form a smooth mixture.Shape in to walnut size balls.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat,add just few drop of oil and start roasting the koftas.Turn occasionally to cook all sides,add a teaspoon of oil after 2 minutes and cook some more while turning them around.Add another teaspoon of oil if needed,using lot of oil will break the koftas.When lightly brown on all sides koftas are ready to serve.
