I used here bottle gourd cutlet as a kofta in this recipes as we can make  Bottle gourd Kofta curry by these cutlets.

Ingredients :
For curry
1 Large onion
2 Tomato
2 nos Green chili
1tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1tsp cumin seeds
2tsp Besan (Gram flour)
2tsp curd
1tsp Coriander Powder
1Tsp Garam Masala Powder
1tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Red chili powder
1tsp kasoori methi(fenugreek leaves)
1Tbsp cilantro finely chopped (for garnishing)
1tbsp oil
1tsp salt or according to taste

For Kofta 
Chek here in this link to check  how to make  Bottle Gourd Cutlet/Kofta 

Grind  Onion ,Tomato ,green chili and make a smooth paste and keep it aside.
Beat yogurt and Flour and set aside.

Heat oil in a pan put oil and add cumin seed and let it saute till brown.

Now Add onion tomato paste,ginger garlic paste , coriander powder,turmeric powder,red chili powder,salt ,gram masala ,besan(Gram flour),curd  and fry it 4-5 minutes till it leaves oil .
Now add 1 cup of water and let it come to boil .

Once water  boil, Add kofta/cutlets in it and cover the pan and cook it again for 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat. Add chopped cilantro in it .

serve with  hot chapati,rice or paranta

Notes-Kofta will absorb the water so put little extra water and cook with kofta only 3-4 minutes. 
so they absorb the masala and gravy. .
