Instructions
  1. Mix together potatoes, green chillies, paneer, cornflour and salt.
  2. Make round balls of the above mixture.
  3. Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.
  4. Fry, till golden brown(just like you do for gulab jamun).
  5. Boil the tomatoes in enough water, until it`s skin starts coming out.
  6. Remove and grind in a mixer.
  7. :- You can take out the tomatoes, mash them, pour the gravy coming out of the tomatoes back into the water and then grind. Otherwise, the tomatoes will splash all over the kitchen.
  8. Reserve the water for later use.
  9. Grind together onions, ginger and garlic into a fine paste. Keep it aside.
  10. Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.
  11. Add crushed whole garam masala.
  12. Add the ground onion paste and fry on a low flame, till the raw smell goes.
  13. :-It should be fried enough otherwise, the raw smell will persist even if you boil later.
  14. Add the tomato puree.
  15. :- You may strain the puree and remove the seeds and skin.
  16. Add the water in which the tomatoes were boiled.
  17. Add salt, sugar, garam masala, tumeric powder, chilly powder, kasuri methi and simmer for some time.
  18. Take this gravy out into a serving dish.
  19. Just before serving, add the koftas so that they don`t get too soft by the time one eats.

The Kofta`s turned out pretty good but I didn`t like the gravy…I don`t know maybe I didn`t add enough water or grinded the onions right.

kasuri methi is a north indian ingrediant mostly used in their curries..it is actually the dried leaves of fenugreek seeds(uluva).Easily available over the counters in MDH and other brands available locally.

I tried this recipe and for once my husband didn`t had any comment and said that it was similar to what he had in hotels. so Thank you so much. the only thing I had a problem was the kofta getting split while frying. Is there anything i can do to avoid it.. But it was really great.. Thank you
