Chicken Kofta Curry

Ingredients to make Chicken Kofta Curry

  • Chicken mince(from thigh)- 500gms
  • Onions- 4 medium sized, chopped
  • Ginger- garlic paste- 1 tbsp
  • Tomato puree- 1/2 cup
  • Fresh curd- 1/2 cup, beaten
  • Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala- 1 tsp
  • Deggi mirch- 1 tsp
  • Mustard oil- 1/4 cup +1 tbsp extra
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Handful of Chopped coriander for garnish

How to make Chicken Kofta Curry

  1. Season the mince with salt and pepper and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil (to smoking point then let cool a bit) saute the onions, followed by the ginger garlic paste. After 5 minutes add in the tomato puree along with the coriander and cumin powder.
  3. Add the deggi mirch and cook till oil separates from masala, add in the garam masala now and give it a good stir.
  4. Take a tbsp of this masala and add it to the raw mince, mix well.
  5. Now add the curd to the masala in the pan(over low flame), add some water to make a gravy and let simmer over low heat.
  6. Meanwhile shape the mince mixture into lemon sized balls. Heat a tbsp of oil till moderately hot. Fry the kofta balls till golden , drain and keep aside. Add any leftover oil to the simmering masala mixture to enrich the gravy.
  7. Add the fried kofta balls to the simmering gravy, check seasoning and let simmer for 10 minutes till koftas are tender.
  8. Garnish with fresh coriander.
My Tip: Add some sliced, blanched Almonds to make it richer.Serve piping hot with lacha paranthas/rice. Make sure you use fresh curd else it will split.
