Now coming back to today's recipe "Paneer Kofta Gravy". This is a typical North Indian delicacy which is prepared during lunch/ dinner parties to treat family and friends. Hope all of you like this....It's very simple believe me....


Serves: 2, Preparation time: 30-40 minutes

For Paneer Balls:
1 cup Paneer grated (Cottage Cheese)
1 tbsp plain Flour
2 small sized Potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 tbsp Cornflour
2 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
1 tbsp fresh Coriander leaves (chopped)
1 tsp red Chilli powder
Salt to taste
Oil for Deep frying

For Gravy:
2 Tomatoes
1 inch Ginger
1 pod Garlic
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1 tbsp Coriander leaves
1 cup Water

To make Paneer Balls: Mix all the ingredients (above mentioned for paneer balls) in a large bowl, until potatoes are mashed and paneer is well mixed with the rest of the ingredients. Make small balls of the mixture. Heat oil in skillet (medium flame) and deep fry the balls until they are golden brown in colour. Keep aside.
                                                      BEFORE FRYING

                                                           AFTER FRYING 

For Gravy: Make a paste of tomatoes, ginger and garlic in a blender/ processor. Heat oil in a saucepan, fry cumin seeds and fry until they start to splutter. Add the paste (tomato-garlic-ginger) and fry till it leaves oil. Add turmeric and chilli powder. Stir it. Add a cup of water, bring to boil and make a thick gravy. Put the flame off, add garam masala, paneer balls and coriander leaves. And let them soak in the gravy for atleast 10 minutes before serving. Serve hot with Pulao or Chappati.
