How to make Falahari Nargisi Koftas

  1. In a mixing bowl put together paneer, little salt and saffron, make like a dough and leave it for 15 minutes.
  2. In another mixing bowl put together mashed potatoes, arrowroot powder and salt, mix nicely to form like a dough.
  3. Heat oil in a kadai or pan, first on high heat then make it medium not low.
  4. Now make balls from the potatoes mixture and flatten it on your palm.
  5. Now mix the paneer mixture nicely, saffron will give a nice yellow colour to it.
  6. Make balls from the paneer mixture also, smaller than the potatoes one.
  7. Place the paneer ball in the center of the flattened potatoes mixture and seal it properly from all the sides, giving an oval shape.
  8. Now slowly slide the kofta in the hot oil, fry by turning them occasionally, until they become brown.
  9. In this way make all the koftas.
  10. Fry one or two koftas at one time.
  11. Heat oil in a pan and put jeera and cloves, let them splutter.
  12. Then add red chilly powder, dhania powder and saute.
  13. Then add ginger - green chillies paste, saute for few seconds.
  14. Now add tomato puree, cook until the oil comes out.
  15. Then add kasoori methi, cook for a minute.
  16. Then add white paste, cook for few seconds and then add malai.
  17. Mix well and cook until the malai merges well.
  18. Then add saffron milk and little water, cook stirring continuously until one boil comes.
  19. Now add salt and elaichi powder.
  20. Cook further for 3 - 4 minutes and it is done.
  21. Cut the koftas into halves.
  22. Pour some gravy in a serving bowl and place the cut koftas on the gravy and serve hot.
  23. You can have this with any type of falahari pooris or chillas.

My Tip:

While boiling the potatoes, there should not be any water. Always fry on medium flame and only one or two koftas at a time. Always add salt in the end while using milk in the gravy, otherwise it may curdle.
