Malai Kofta Curry

    Malai Kofta Curry is a dish truly fit for royalty. It can be called a suitable vegetarian substitute to the traditional
    meat ball curry and makes a good accompaniment with paratha or roti.

    Serves 6:
    Preparation time: 1 hour

  • Cream, full fat – 100 ml
  • Cumin Seeds – 1 teaspoon
  • Onions, chopped – 1 large
  • Green Chillie – 1
  • Tomato Puree – 150 gm
  • Ginger paste – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric Powder – 1
  • Red Chillie Powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander Powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – 2 teaspoon or to taste.
  • Water – 200 ml
  • Oil – 50 ml
  • 10 – 12 balls of potato paneer fry.
  • Coriander, freshly chopped – 1 small bunch.

  • Heat oil in a frying pan, add cumin seeds and fry for 4-5 seconds. Add green chilli, onion and fry till they are golden
    brown in colour.

  • Add tomato puree, ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chillie powder, coriander powder, salt and mix

  • Keep frying till it reduces to a thick paste. Add water to it at this stage to make a gravy. Let the gravy boil for 4-5

  • When the gravy is boiled, add cream to it and remove from heat. Add the Potato Paneer Fry to it. Don’t stir too much
    as this might break the kofta.

  • Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with Roti or rice.

    Use minced meat to make spicy meat balls. Use same recipe as malai kofta curry for an equally delicious dish.
