Hello everyone! Hope you are having a rocking and relaxed Sunday!
To make your Sunday even more special, I’m here to share a superb dish with you. It is called VEG PANEER KOFTA , the most important and royal part of Indian cuisine. (Also my favourite!)
I enjoy Veg Paneer Kofta mostly on Sundays and the enjoyment doubles during rainy season and winters. Who doesn’t love to have steaming hot spicy food when its cold outside!
Okay so now I begin with the general ingredients required to make this utterly delicious dish.
Kofta Balls are made of :
1. Grated bottle gourd (lauki)
2. Boiled Potato
3. Crushed Paneer
4. Corn Flour (besan)
5. Green Chillies
6. Dry Coriander Powder
8. Garam Masala
9. Salt, according to taste
These ingredients are mixed to make a dough and then shaped into balls. The balls are then deep fried in refined oil on slow flame.
Kofta Curry is made of :
1. Grinded onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic
2. Fine tomato paste
Heat some oil in frying pan and fry the onion and garlic paste till it turns a little brown. Then add tomato paste to it and fry it for 2-3 minutes. Add dry spices like red chilly powder, turmeric, coriander powder, pinch of Garam Masala and salt. Add some water to the curry and boil it for 5 minutes. Now add Kofta balls into the curry and boil it for 5 minutes and cover it with a lid for the Koftas to soak the essence of curry.
Pour the curry in service bowl and garnish it with green coriander leaves and small pieces of cashew nuts.
Serve it hot with Indian Chapati/Naan/Tandoori Roti/Plain Rice/Biryani.
Veg Paneer Kofta is ready to be relished!
Hope you liked the dish. 🙂
