How to make Coconut Kofta Curry

  1. Grind fresh coconut, soaked chana dal, ginger, green chillies and salt into smooth and fine paste except the rice flour.
  2. Mix rice flour and salt to this mixture. Make small balls out of it and shape it as koftas.
  3. Heat oil in a kadhai. Deep fry the koftas. Keep aside.
  4. For gravy: Heat oil in a pan, add sugar and let the sugar turn a little red.
  5. Add jeera, bay leaf and all the powdered spices.
  6. Fry for a while and then add the tomatoes. Add salt to taste and fry till the oil separates.
  7. Add cashew nut paste and a little water.
  8. Let it cook for 3-4 minutes. Add kasoori methi powder and add the koftas.
  9. Turn off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves.
  10. Serve hot.

My Tip:

Let the gravy be a little watery so that the koftas soak the gravy properly.
