Paneer Kofta Curry – I am Loving It:)

Paneer Kofta Curry – I am Loving It:)

Paneer Kofta Curry:

After done with paneer(Yeah, the home made one), it left a lot of scrap! The trimming part was fun, guess I overwhelmingly chopped it down:( I felt awful to trash the scrap. I was never allowed to waste food, back home. So, this recipe was planned instantly, to fix the shredded cottage cheese. Well, I have to say…it indeed turned more than good. And I am loving it:)


For Paneer Kofta:

Shredded panir 1 cup
Onion finely chopped
Boiled n mashed potato 1/2 cup
Green chili 1 minced
Ginger-garlic paste 1/2 spoon
Garam masala powder 1/4 spoon
Oil for frying.

For Gravy:

Onion 1 large grated
Ginger-garlic paste 1/2 spoon
Tomato 2 pureed
Turmeric powder
Chili powder 1 spoon
Paprika powder 1 spoon
Garam masala powder 1/4 spoon
Cashew nuts 15 – paste
Ghee for frying.


Mix all the above mentioned ingredients for kofta, except oil.

In a shallow pan, heat oil and fry the paneer koftas. Set aside.

In a wide wok, heat oil and add ginger-garlic paste and onion. Fry real good and then followed by tomato puree.

Further add powdered spices plus nuts paste, cover and cook. Once oil shows up on the top, remove from heat. Add the fried paneer koftas to it

Serve warm to go with your chappathis or rotis.

  33. niveditha says:

    I made this for lunch today. Your Koftas have come so perfect. The kofta balls got broken in the oil, so it was a mess.Is there any binding agent required to fry? pls help

  34. Malar Gandhi says:


    I am sorry about the mishap. Hmmm, potato is the binding agent here. Keep the dough very dry…it should not be wet.

    If the koftas don’t turn up crispy and round,try adding 2 spoons of rice flour and few spoons of egg white. This should really work. Cheer up, you will get it.
