  • Now, switch off the gas remove the mixture on a plate. Now, grease your hands with oil so that the mixture won’t stick to the hands.
  • Now make kofta balls from the mixture.
  • Again switch on the gas and heat 7-8 tablespoons of refined oil in a pan and fry all the koftas made from the mixture till it becomes brown.
  • Remove all the koftas on a plate.

  • Add onion paste and cooks all of them till it becomes brown, now add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, and Kasuri methi and mix it well.
  • Now time add the 3 tablespoons of tomatoes puree and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add salt and a little water and cook till the tomatoes are soft and gravy becomes thick.
  • Now, add the coriander leaves and cream and put the flame off.
  • Add the koftas only while serving otherwise it becomes soft and can break.
