Kofta is nothing but an Indian version of meatballs—meatballs cooked in a creamy and spicy curry sauce. A few ingredients or spices may be different but the comfort and warmth you get with those meatballs, you will find the same here.
Mix together all the ingredients for the meatballs.
Wet your hands and make small lime-sized balls out of them. Put them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least ½ hour and, at most, 1 day.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes. You can also deep fry them like koftas are traditionally made or you can boil them directly with the sauce until they are cooked through. I don’t deep fry because, well, my waist doesn’t let me do that, and sometimes boiling in the sauce can break the balls if they are not bound properly, so I bake them.
For the sauce, heat oil and ghee in a thick-bottomed pan.
Add onion, ginger and garlic paste and cook them until all the liquid in the paste evaporates. The whole beauty of curry is in this stage: how well you fry your onion paste. So cook it slowly over medium heat, stirring frequently.
Once the paste turns golden brown, add cumin powder, salt, turmeric, cayenne pepper and coriander powder. When you add the dry ingredients, it starts to burn quickly, so stir it all together to mix well. Add the tomato puree. Cook the puree until the sauce begins to thicken.
Then add cashew paste and cream, and cook some more. You will see oil in the edges of the pan. Then add garam masala and kasuri methi.
Mix it together and throw in all the meatballs (including the drippings in the baking dish).
Turn the heat to low, cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for 6-8 minutes.
I usually let my curry rest for 15-20 minutes after it’s done and before serving. My dad says it helps all the spices marry together and the dish tastes better. Serve with hot naan/roti or rice.
