How to make Malai Kofta

  1. First of all mash the boiled potatoes, add in some salt and arrarowt in it.
  2. Now make a dough by mashing it completely, make a ball and and flatten it. Pace a raisin in it and shape it like a cutlet, make all the koftas in the same manner. Then deep fry them and keep aside.
  3. Heat butter in a pan, add in the curry patta, cumin seeds, asafoetida, turmeric powder, onion and ginger-garlic paste. Now add in the green chillies and saute for 2 minutes.
  4. Next add in the red chilli, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt. Now add in the tomato puree cook it for 5 -7 mins till the puree leaves the butter. Then add the white gravy made by the cashew nuts and khas khas, let it cook for 5 mins.
  5. Now pour in the milk and curd, cover the pan and cook for another 10 mins. After this, add in the malai and koftas prepared earlier.
  6. Garnish it with cream and coriander and serve it with fulka or naan.

My Tip:

Fry the koftas in a low flame otherwise it will remain uncooked inside.
