  • 1 1/2 tbsp - Red Chilli Powder

How to make Kashmiri Kofta Curry (Mutton)

  1. For the Koftas: Wash the mince and leave it to drain in a colander.
  2. Remove moisture by squeezing it out using your hands.
  3. Once the moisture has been drained, mix all ingredients (to be used for Koftas), except oil for frying and mix well.
  4. Make mince balls using delicate hands, do no press hard, just gently bring the mince together.
  5. Heat oil in a deep wok and when hot, deep fry the koftas. Keep adjusting the flame and alternating between high and low flame.
  6. When cooked completely, remove the koftas and keep aside
  7. For the Gravy:
  8. In the wok, take oil and crackle some badi elaichi and bay leaves.
  9. Add onion paste and fry very well. Later add ginger-garlic paste and cook.
  10. Ensure that the raw smell of ginger-garlic goes away and the mixture should turn slightly brownish.
  11. Add the dry masalas like Red Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder, Haldi, Garam Masala and saute for a few seconds.
  12. Add the tomato puree and cook, till the cooked masala leaves out oil, add 3 glasses of water for the gravy and let it boil for a few minutes
  13. You can adjust the amount of water as per your liking - thick or thin gravy.
  14. When the gravy comes to a boil, add the fried koftas and let them simmer in the gravy for at least 5-7 minutes for the koftas to release its juices and impart flavour to the gravy.
  15. Garnish with fresh coriander and enjoy with plain rice.
My Tip: Badi Elaichi is the most important spice which imparts a very unique flavour to the koftas with every bite. Best when served with steamed rice
