How to make Makhani Chicken Kofta

  1. In a bowl add all ingredients mentioned above for kofta. Mix and make equal size balls. Heat oil in a pan deep fry all koftas, keep aside on an absorbent paper.
  2. In another pan add half quantity of butter. Add 1 tsp of oil to prevent burning of butter. Add tomato puree, red chilli powder, sugar, kashmiri chilli powder, kasoori methi powder, cumin powder and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Add water to adjust the gravy consistency. Once it starts boiling, add fried koftas, rest of the butter and simmer on low heat for 5-10 minutes. The koftas should absorb gravy.
  4. Turn off heat and add cream, stir carefully. Serve with Rice/naan.

My Tip:

While adding salt in gravy always be careful as we added salt in kofta too. Adjust spices as per own taste.
