About Beef Kofta Curry

  • 1 Onion very finely chopped
  • 1 Green chilli finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ginger paste
  • 1 tsp Fresh Garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • ½ tsp Clove powder
  • 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped green Coriander
  • 1 ½ tbsp Besan/Chickpea Flour
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Tomatoes blanched in hot water
  • 2 Onions roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted Cashew nuts
  • 1 tsp Ginger paste
  • 1 tsp Garlic paste
  • 3 Cardamoms
  • 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala powder
  • 1/2 inch Cinnamon stick

How to make Beef Kofta Curry

  1. Soak the cashew nuts in hot water for 15 minutes or in plain water for a few hours.
  2. Bring all the ingredients for the Kofta except the oil together and mix well.
  3. Gently make soft medium sized balls. You should be able to make around 15 – 18 balls out of this.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick pan or kadhai/wok.
  5. Once heated add the meatballs and shallow fry them until golden brown on all sides. This should take around 10 – 12 minutes.
  6. Drain on a kitchen towel and keep them aside. Do not throw away the left over oil as we will prepare the gravy in the same pan.
  7. In the same pan in which we fried the Koftas, if you have left over oil, add the onions, ginger and garlic and sauté till the onion is translucent.
  8. Now add the blanched tomatoes and cook till everything is mushed up.
  9. Let this cool before adding the onions and tomato mixture in a grinder. Remove the Cashew nuts from the water and add them as well, blitzing everything in a smooth gravy.
  10. Now in the same pan or a deep bottomed pan add ½ tsp oil, cardamoms and cinnamon. Add the smooth gravy and cover, letting it cook on a medium flame for 7 – 10 minutes.
  11. Now add the red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt and garam masala before adding 1 cup of warm water to the gravy
  12. Bring the gravy to a boil before you add the Koftas gently. Let the Koftas gently simmer in the gravy for 15 minutes or so.
  13. Before serving garnish the curry with some coriander, cashew nuts, cream or yogurt on a bed of plain boiled rice or some hot naans to soak up all the flavours
