Malai Kofta

Malai Kofta 

I have posted the Healthy Version of Malai Kofta already, this is the way of actually making Malai koftas. No doubt, these will taste double awesome.


For the Kofta:

Paneer or cottage cheese - 250 grams (Crmbled)

Potato - 1 (Medium, peeled, boiled and mashed - I did not add it as I was able to work with the Paneer, however if you are trying this for the first time, then use mashed Potato)
Green Chillies - 1 (Finely Chopped)
Ginger - Garlic Paste - 1/4 Teaspoon
Rice Flour or Maida or Corn Flour or Bread - 2 tablespoon or 2 slices made into crumbs
Salt - To taste
Oil - as required (Usually it is ssupposedto be deep fried, however I did shallow Fry)
Sooji or Bread Crumbs - To coat the Koftas

For the Gravy: 

Onion - 1 (Big, Boiled and made into a paste)
Cashew Nuts - 10 Nos (Boil it in some warm water and grind into a paste)
Tomato - 1 (Medium, Blanched and skin peeled and pureed)
Ginger - Garlic Paste - /2 Teaspoon
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Garam Masala - 1/4 Teaspoon
Milk - 2-4 tablespoon 
Salt - To Taste
Oil - 2 Tablespoon (I used Olive Oil)
Kasoori Methi - 1/2 Tabelspoon
Fresh Cream - 4 Tablespoon

  • Place the grated Paneer,Ginger garlic paste (1/4/teaspoon),,salt and green chillies and mix well.
  • Add Corn Flour little by Little till you are able to knead it into a dough.
  • Prepare Koftas using this prepared mixture and make them into koftas.
  • Coat the koftas with Bread crumbs or Sooji. 
  • Deep fry it or shallow fry it as per your choice. 
  • Remove them and place them in a paper towel. 
  • In a pan, add some oil and add Onion paste and cook well.
  • Once it is cooked, add the Ginger garlic paste, Tomato purée and cook well.
  • Once it is cooked add the Garam Masala and Red Chilly powder and cook till the raw flavour leaves.
  • Now reduce the flame and add the Cashew paste and cook till the raw flavour of cashew goes completely.
  • This may take 3-4 minutes
  • Now add Milk and cook on low flame and cook.
  • Crush the Kasoori methi and add it to this.
  • Add salt and adjust the consistency to suit your need.
  • To this add the Kofta and cook for a minute and serve immediately.
