Introduction: Malai Kofta

We always are so tempted towards restaurant Malai Kofta. Is it so difficult to make??? The answer is NO... you can make restaurant style Malai Kofta at home which has rich gravy with perfect looking kofta balls. If you want to avoid oil from kofta then , you can make these balls in appe pan as well.

Step 1: Kofta Balls

Mash paneer, potatoes, 1 tsp refined flour, salt to prepare a mixture/ dough. Roll out small balls and coat all balls with refined flour to get an even surface. Dust off extra flour form the balls. Deep fry these balls or cook in appe pan.

Step 2: Gravy

Heat oil in a kadai, saute cumin seeds, spices for 1 min. Saute onions till it becomes pink, add tomatoes along with ginger garlic and cook for 10-15 min till tomatoes becomes soft. Cool down the mixture and grind to get puree.

Looks delicious!

What would be good substitutes for the paneer and the malai? Ricotta & heavy cream? Thanks.
