- Let it fry well till you get the fragrance.
- After all of this, take the onion paste and add it and make sure it becomes brown or golden-ish in color.
- Make sure to add ginger-garlic paste. Now fry it for a few seconds so that the raw aroma of the paste goes away.
- After that, you have to add the puree that you have made with the tomato and sauté for about 5 minutes.
- Use turmeric, garam masala and add even the chili powder. If you have cashew paste, add that or make cashew paste by just grounding cashew and a little milk.
- Make sure to stir it completely and then saute till the oil starts to leave the sides of the masala paste. add water and stir.
- Now, let the gravy begun to thicken and once that is done, simmer it. It would definitely take close to 10-15 minutes on low flame.
- When you know you are done, add kasturi methi to it and then finally add salt.
- You could also add sugar, a very little if you want it to have a sweet taste. Let the sugar be very less so that you have a tangy yet sweet taste.
- Once you are done with all of this, add the koftas in the curry if serving immediately or you can also add the curry first in the serving plate or bowl and then place the koftas.
- Make sure that you definitely garnish the malai kofta with some cream, grated paneer and coriander leaves.
You can serve the dish – malai kofta with parantha or roti for better taste than rice.
