Recipe
1
In a large bowl, mix 200 grams grated paneer, 2 boiled and mashed potatoes, 2 tablespoons cornflour, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, and salt to taste. Knead well to form a smooth dough.
2
Divide the dough into equal portions and shape them into round kofta balls. Optionally, you can stuff each kofta with a mixture of chopped cashews and raisins.
3
Heat oil in a deep frying pan and deep-fry the koftas until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
4
In a separate pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add 1 teaspoon cumin seeds. Once they crackle, add 1 finely chopped onion and sauté until golden brown.
5
Add 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste and cook for 2 minutes. Then, add 2 cups of tomato puree, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon red chili powder, 1 teaspoon coriander powder, and salt to taste. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
6
Add 1 cup of water and bring the gravy to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
7
Add 1/2 cup of fresh cream and 1/2 teaspoon garam masala to the gravy. Mix well and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
8
Gently place the koftas in the gravy and cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with naan or rice.
