Paneer Kofta Curry


Paneer Kofta Curry is an amazing dish in which deep fried balls (koftas) made with potato and paneer are dunked in a creamy spiced velvety smooth curry.


1 Bowl Boiled Potato

1 Bowl Paneer

1 Bowl Tomato Puree

1 finely Chopped onion

Cashew paste (you soak some cashews in water and make paste of it)

All basic masalas

Kofta Preparation

  1.       We take 1 Bowl of boiled and grated potato in a bowl.
  2.       We add 1 Bowl of grated paneer
  3.       To this we add the masalas, 1 ½ tsp of chilli powder, ½ tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp of garam masala and salt according to taste.
  4.       To bind this all together, we add 2-3 tbsp of gram flour (besan) to this and mix it all well together.
  5.       Grease your hands and make small round balls from this dough and coat it with Maida (all-purpose flour) and put it in oil to deep fry it. Similarly, we add all the other koftas into the oil.
  6.       We fry these koftas until they are well cooked and are golden brown in colour.
  7.       Once they are golden brown, we remove the koftas from the oil and let it rest aside.
  8.       Crispy golden koftas are ready and they are very tasty.

Kofta Gravy

  1.       We take 1tbsp oil in a wok and add 1 tsp of cumin seeds, 2 green cardamom, 2 cloves and couple of bay leaves.
  2.       Once the aroma is released, we add the finely chopped onion and fry it.
  3.       To this we add 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste and fry the onions until well cooked and golden brown.
  4.       We add 1 cup of tomato puree to this and mix it well.
  5.       We cover the wok and cook it well. After about 5-10 mins, we add the masalas to this.
  6.       We add 1tsp of chilli powder, ½ tsp of turmeric powder, ½ tsp of cumin powder, 1 tsp of coriander powder and ½ tsp of garam masala and some salt according to taste and mix it well.
  7.       We cover the wok and cook it in medium heat until the tomato is well cooked and reduced.
  8.       The oil separates from the tomatoes, we add the cashew paste to this and mix it well. This gives it a bit of creamy texture and flavour.
  9.       We add sufficient water and mix it well.
  10.   To this we now add the fried golden koftas and cover the wok to cook it for a while
  11.   Once the koftas are well cooked for about 5-10 minutes in the gravy, in the end we add ½ tsp of garam masala and some kasuri methi to this.
  12.   Mix it well and let it rest. Optionally, you can add some fresh cream and mix it.
  13.   Paneer Kofta is ready. Serve it hot with Roti, Parantha or Rice.
