How to Make Special Paneer Kofta

  • For koftas:
  • Mash the boiled potatoes and mix it with the paneer, besan and baking soda.
  • Mix it nicely to form a soft dough.
  • The dough will be a little sticky, applying a little oil on the palm will make it easier to handle it.
  • Make small round balls (about 1 inch diameter) and deep fry in the cooking oil to a golden brown colour.
  • Remove from oil, strain the excess on a paper towel and keep aside.
  • For the gravy:
  • Grind the tomatoes, onions, ginger and garlic to a smooth paste in the blender.
  • In a kadai or wok or any deep vessel, add 1 tbsp of oil on medium heat.
  • Add the paste and the remaining spices and yogurt. Stir till the oil starts to separate at the edges.
  • Then add the liquid and let it simmer for 15 -20 minutes on medium low.
  • The koftas should be adds to the gravy just a few minutes before serving.
  • Heat the gravy very nicely and add the koftas just 3-4 minutes before serving.
  • If added earlier, the koftas absorb too much gravy and break up.
