Cabbage & panner kofta curry

By Anitha Kirubakaran on Aug 27, 2013

Kofta is a classic north indian dish originated from Mughalai cuisine. It is a very simple dish. I felt that deep frying these koftas will consume more oil. So shallow fried these koftas in paniyaram pan. Although it took little extra time but still no compromise in taste. Low falt,guilt-free koftas. This kofta curry goes well with chapatis,naan,parathas & any mild variety if rice.

For making gravy:
Method:
1. Heat oil in a pan, roughly chop onion, tomato & garlic. Add onions & garlic, saute until translucent.
2. Add the chopped tomatoes & fry them till mushy. Allow the mixture to cool down completely & grind it into smooth paste adding red chilli powder,turmeric powder & tomato sauce.
3. Heat oil in a pan, add the ground paste & saute them till the raw smell goes off. When the gravy seperates oil, add the milk & water. I have low fat milk.
4. Make the gravy as thin as possible. While adding the koftas, the gravy will become thick. Garnish with garam masala & corainder leaves.
5. Finally add the koftas before serving.
