Kofta Lazeez Recipe

This is an easy and quick way of making a Kofta curry when one is running short of time. I used the ingredients that were readily available at home and was very happy with the results.

Ingredients for the Kofta:

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 2 potatoes
  • 3 green chillies
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 tbsp curd
  • 2 tbsps maida/all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsps Besan/Chickpea flour
  • Salt
  • Oil for frying the koftas

Ingredients for the Gravy:

  • 4 onions
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 inch piece of cinnamon
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 Cardamom
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp chilly powder
  • 2 tbsps coriander powder
  • A pinch of turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsps fresh cream
  • 1 tsp jeera
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 2 tbsps ghee/clarified butter
  • Coriander leaves

Method :
Pressure cook the potatoes. Deskin and mash them. Crumble the slices of bread. Make a coarse paste of the green chillies, ginger and garlic. Add the mashed potatoes , crumbled bread, the ginger garlic and green chilly paste, salt, curd and the besan and maida together. Mix well and make balls of the dough. Heat oil. Deep fry the koftas to a rich golden brown. Keep aside.
Chop the onions keep them aside. Chop the tomatoes too roughly. Grate the ginger and garlic. Heat the oil and ghee mixture. Add the jeera, Cloves, Cinnamon, Cardamom in that order. Add the onions, ginger and garlic and sauté till the onions are translucent and the spices give out an aroma. Add the chopped tomatoes, chilly, coriander and turmeric powders, toss and cook till mushy. Switch off. Allow to cool thoroughly. Blend it along with the cream to a smooth paste. Pour it into a non sticky pan. Allow to boil well and add the koftas just before serving. Give one boil, garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice or roti.
