Paneer Kofta Curry | Cottage Cheese Balls in Gravy

Paneer Kofta Curry is what we had for lunch today, the gravy for this dish is a mild and creamy tomato based gravy, and koftas are made with an outer covering of potato and a panner stuffing.
Really quick to make and very tasty too.This dish goes best with basmati rice with some yogurt on the side.

Here's the recipe for Paneer Kofta Curry (cottage cheese balls in gravy)

For the Kofta's
1/2 cup Grated Paneer
1 potato boiled and grated
2 tsp cornflour
coriander leaves chopped fine
1/2 tsp chaat masala

For the Gravy
1 onion crushed with 2 green chilis
1 tomato
2 tbs ginger and garlic paste
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp whole garam masala (pepper corns,cardamom,bay leaf and cinnamon)
1 cube Shahi Gravy Paste
1 tsp sugar
salt to taste

Start by making the Koftas,add salt and 2 tsp cornflour to the grated potato and keep it aside.

Then add chaat masala,salt and coriander leaves to the grated paneer..Now make medium size balls with the potato and flatten a little,stuff the paneer mix into it and dust with cornflour.

Keep it the fridge for 10 min,then fry till golden brown.

To make the gravy

Saute the onion along with ginger/garlic paste in oil till soft then add the chopped tomato,saute for 5 min then add the dry spices.

Cook till the raw flavour goes and then blend till smooth adding little water.

Once you blend the mix in another pan add ghee then add the whole spices and bay leaf.

Add the blended mix and add in the shahi gravy paste along with salt and sugar,wait for a boil then cook covered for 5 min,now add in the koftas.

Cover the koftas with the gravy.

Now shut the flame and cover the pan for 2/3 min.Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.

Serve this kofta curry with rice and Angoori Raita.

    You may adjust the spices to your liking,but this dish tastes best when you keep it non spicy.

This is a very easy kofta curry,and if you fancy making this a non veg dish,you may stuff the potato with some cooked minced chicken and add it to the same kofta gravy.Just follow the same recipe.
It tastes fabulous with chicken too,and you will love it for sure.
