Malai Kofta

In India, whenever we would go to North Indian/Punjabi Restaurants, we order one sweet or white gravy based vegetable. And mostly it would be Malai Kofta or Khoya Kaju. But here very few places offer these options so I had no choice but to learn making them myself :)

Serves 4-6 (Makes about 22-24 Koftas)
Preparation Time: 40 Minute
Cooking Time: 20 Minute

For Kofta,
2 cup boiled and mashed potatoes
4-6 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp ginger-chili paste
1 tbsp chopped coriander
2 tbsp ricotta cheese
20-25 pc cashew nuts
20-25 pc raisins
Salt per taste
Oil for frying

For Gravy
2.5 cup onion paste
1 tsp poppy seeds
1 tbsp મગત્સરીના બી
20 pc cashew nuts
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp chili paste
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oil
1 bay leaf
¼ cup heavy cream
Salt, sugar and lemon juice per taste

For Garnishing,
Coriander leaves

1. Mix mashed potatoes, flour, salt, coriander leaves and ginger chili paste
2. Divide this mixture into balls.
3. Now take each ball, stuff with little ricotta cheese, cashew and raisin
4. Fry them on medium flame until golden brown
5. Soak cashew nuts, મગત્સરીના બી and poppy seeds in water/milk for about an hour and grind into a paste
6. Heat oil in skillet, add bay leaf, cumin seeds and onion paste and minced garlic
7. When it starts leaving oil on edges, add cashew paste and chili paste
8. Add all remaining spices and mix well
9. Add heavy cream and turn off the heat
10. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot
