How to Make Mango kofta curry

  • Peel mangoes and cut into very small pieces. Keep chilled.
  • Grate cottage cheese and mix with corn flour.
  • When it firms up, make into roundels with a hollow in the centre.
  • Mix a little cumin powder and saunf powder with the mangoes and use as stuffing for the kofta. Make the koftas a little oblong in shape.
  • Heat oil and deep fry the koftas.
  • Use the fried kofta oil and add the whole garam masala and the other masalas.
  • Later, add the boiled onion paste and saute.
  • After some time, when the onion paste gets cooked without colouring, add the cashew paste and salt and saute for some more time.
  • Add the curd in the end. Make sure the curd is not overcooked.
  • Cut the koftas into two (length wise) and add to the gravy delicately. Serve hot.
  • Garnish with thin strips of mango on top.
