    Paneer Kofta - don’t miss the ‘no fry kofta’ trick

    Sharing this on many viewers’ request, my version of Paneer Kofta (you may want to call this malai kofta) but I have made it very light; hence not calling it malai kofta.

    Method to prepare No Fry Malai Kofta Paneer Stuffed

    • Take some paneer which we will use for stuffing.
    • Take some potatoes, boil and shred them and keep aside.
    • Crush Paneer and add some salt.
    • Add coriander leaves, finely chopped spring onions, finely chopped chillies and raisins.
    • Mix everything – paneer stuffing is ready.
    • Make small marble size balls from paneer stuffing.
    • Now in the boiled potato bowl, add some salt and pepper.
    • Add some breadcrumbs – crush normal bread slice in a mixie; add little coriander leaves in it too.
    • Breadcrumbs will help bind potato; you can alternatively use cornflour too.
    • Now take out small roundels; apply little oil in hands and make filling inside with paneer stuffing.
    • I am using appam pan to shallow fry these paneer kofta which is the twist; usually, people fry these.
    • Shallow fry the kofta balls from both sides on medium flame; and let it cook for.
    • 5-7 min till you see golden color on all sides.
    • As such everything in the kofta is cooked.
    • Now make paneer kofta gravy.
    • Heat up a pan, take some oil, take a cinnamon stick, 2 cloves and 1 tsp cumin seeds.
    • As you hear crackling sounds of cumin seeds, add finely chopped 3 cloves of garlic.
    • Add small piece of ginger grated.
    • Let garlic and ginger get cooked a little, add chopped onion.
    • And add 2-3 fresh chillies.
    • Add some salt.
    • Cook till onion gets golden brown, add 4 tomatoes chopped.
    • Mix well, now add few cashews, it will give our gravy creamy texture and no need to add cream; it will also make the gravy thick.
    • Cover and cook for a while till tomatoes get mushy.
    • Switch off the heat and let the mixture cool down;
    • Don’t forget to remove cinnamon stick out.
    • Churn it in mixie, and keep gravy ready for further cooking.
    • In the same pan, add 1/2 tsp oil to fry masalas;
    • Keep flame very slow else masalas will get burnt.
    • Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp coriander seeds powder and 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder.
    • Keep stirring the pan till you get the fragrance of masalas , then add little water so that masalas don’t get burnt.
    • Now add the tomato mixed gravy that we churned in the mixie.
    • Add little water and cover the lead and let it cook for 5 min.
    • If you need add little water.
    • Again cover the lead and let it cook for some time.
    • Now add little Kasuri methi (fenugreek) for nice fragrance.
    • Mix everything and at last, add some coriander leaves.
    • Kofta gravy is ready; serve it with kofta and enjoy with roti, nan, paratha, bread or even rice.
