Malai Kofta is a North Indian delicacy which has a rich creamy gravy, the recipe that I am sharing here has a little bit of twist as the Kofta balls are not fried in oil, give it a try and let me how you feel for the Bread Malai Kofta with a twist :p
Ingredients- (Serves 3-4 people)
Bread slices- 4
Boiled potatoes- 4 medium sized
Fresh cream- 100ml
Onions- 3 (fine paste)
Ginger & Garlic Paste- ½ spoon
Green chillies-2 finely chopped
Ghee to fry the curry- 3-4 spoons
Garam masala- 2 tea spoons
Red chilli powder- 1/4 tea spoon
Coriander powder- 2 table spoons
Sabut Masala- 1 Elaichi(Cardamom), 1 Tej Patta(Bay Leaf), 1 Laung(Clove), 1 small piece Dal Chini(Cinnamon)
Cashews- 4 pieces (roasted without ghee/oil and powdered)
For the Kofta balls:
Take medium sized bowl, add boiled potatoes, paneer, cashew powder, 1 tea spoon salt, 1 Table Spoon Coriander Powder, mash everything and make 4 round balls.
Now take the 4 bread slices, cut remove their sides. Take one slice, soften it with help of water, keep the mashed potato ball in the centre and cover the entire potato ball with the bread.
Now for the Gravy:
Take a Deep Frying Pan, Add ghee to it and let it become hot. Add cumin seeds, Sabut Masala and green chillies, when the cumin seeds start to crackle add the onion paste, ginger garlic paste and fry them until golden brown, now add salt garam masala, red chilli powder, coriander powder and cook for another 2 min, add little water if needed. After 2 min add cream and water to the mixture and cook for 5 min.
Turn off the flame and add the Kofta balls to the gravy, sprinkle the coriander leaves on the top and cover the lid.
The Malai Kofta is ready to be served after 5 min. 🙂
