How to Make Easy Malai Kofta from GulabJamun Mix

  • Mix the gulab jamoon mix as directed on the pack, and make round balls (koftas) keeping the mixed nuts in the centre. | Deep-fry them in oil on a low flame until golden brown in colour and keep aside.
  • Dry roast cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and cloves together.
  • Dry grind and keep aside. Wet grind all the other ingredients and keep aside.
  • Heat oil/ghee in a kadai, add the powdered spices, and fry for one minute.
  • Add the cashew-paneer paste and fry well and keep stirring so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.
  • Add water till the desired consistency and let it boil for 10 minutes. When oil starts oozing out off the sides, add salt accordingly.
  • Pour the hot gravy over the koftas just before serving and garnish with green coriander leaves and grated cheese.
  • Serve hot with parathas or rice.
