Recipe Notes

Add the koftas in a gravy to make a kofta curry.

TIP: To make an instant curry base, use a packet of readymade bhuna masala (ginger-garlic-tomato-onion paste). Saute it for 2-3 minutes in a pan. Whisk together 1/2 cup yogurt, 1 cup water and 1 tbsp chickpea flour (besan) and add it the sauteed bhuna masala in the pan. Bring this to a simmer. Adjust seasonings. Just before serving, add the koftas to this and coat well in curry. Serve immediately
