Imagine a bowlful of crispy potato, bean, and carrot dumplings topped with fresh spinach and fragrant with the aromas of onions, garlic, ginger, and curry.

If Chef Ryan’s Potato Kofta in Creamy Tomato Sauce recipe isn’t the definition of super-healthy Indian comfort food, we don’t know what is! Each of these vegan “meatballs” is a soul-satisfying mouthful loaded with plant-based protein and essential dietary fiber.

But when it comes to your well-being,  our potato kofta in creamy tomato sauce don’t stop there…

According to this study headed by University of Cambridge researcher Dr. Ravin Jugdaohsingh,  green beans are an excellent source of bone-building silica. The carrot supples eye-protective lutein, while the garlic boosts brainpower.

Still not convinced this is one of the healthiest Indian comfort foods you’ll ever eat? Then consider ginger’s five confirmed health benefits!

But we really doubt that, after having your first taste of our Potato Kofta with Creamy Tomato Sauce, you’ll be thinking about anything but having your next one!
