Stuffed malai kofta

A small variation of making the koftas stuffed with onions and cheese to the usual malai koftas


For koftas-

1 cup grated paneer
2 boiled and mashed potatoes
2 tbsp cornflour
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder

For stuffing-

1 finely chopped onion
1/2 cup grated cheese
Bit of pepper powder

For gravy-

1 medium tomato pureed
2 onions pureed
2 tsp oil
Salt to taste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
Finely chopped coriander leaves
3 tbsp cream


Oil to fry

Mix all the ingredients of the koftas and make balls of it. Mix the ingredients of the stuffing seperately.

Make a depression in the kofta balls, stuff the onion cheese mixture in it and cover it well. Press well without changing the shape of the kofta. Repeat for the rest of the koftas and deep fry till golden brown.

Heat oil, add tomato and onion puree. Cook for 2-3 minutes and add red chilli powder, garam masala powder, salt and water as required for the gravy. Allow it to boil and get a bit thick. Finally add in the cream and coriander leaves.

Just before serving, add in the koftas and serve hot with rotis/pulav
