Place the minced beef or minced lamb in a large bowl along with the garlic, ginger, chilies, onion, egg, herbs and spices. Grate the potato into the bowl and season with salt. Knead together to blend well and form a soft dough.

By using your fingers, shape the kofta mixture into portions of the size of golf balls. You should be able to make 20-25 koftas. Leave the balls to a rest at room temperature for about 25 minutes.

Heat the oil in a frying pan at medium heat and deep fry koftas in small batches until they are golden brown in color. Drain well and serve hot.
