Kofta Makhani

Kofta Makhani

Hope everyone had a good weekend and all gear up to celebrate Pongal/Makar Sankranti & of course all the yummy goodies to go along.  If you are still wondering what to prepare for this festive then check out Makar Sankranti Roundup here and get ideas from others ...it always helps to have options and ideas :)

Meanwhile here I’m with Kofta Makhani recipe as promised in my previous post.  Having rice and just the koftas will be very dry so I made makhani gravy and used the same kofta.   For makhani again I have followed Masterchef India recipe, well just partial of it,

The original recipe is Palak Dill Cannelloni with Tulsi Makhani, from which I just took the makhani recipe and made Kofta Makhani ..:)


For Kofta refer here

For Makhani

Tomato - 2

Onion - 1

Garlic - 2 pods

Ginger - 1/2"

Cashewnuts - 5

Black Peppercorns - 2

Green Cardamon - 2

Kasoori Methi - 1 tsp

Butter - 1tbsp

Salt - to taste

Water -


1. Chop tomato and onion.

2. In a pan boli water and add all the ingredients except kasoori methi, salt and butter.  Boil till tomato gets cooked.

3. Once cool grind the mixture, add little water if required and strain. [ I didn't strain, just grind the mixture very smooth.]

4. In a pan heat melt butter, add prepared mixture, salt and cook for 6-7 mins in medium heat.

5. Add kasoori methi and cook for 2more mins. 
~ You can add 1tbsp of cream now but I didn't

Add the koftas in the gravy just before serving to avoid koftas from breaking.  This goes well with pulav, jeera rice or paratha and we had with Zaika-e-Basmati Khaas

Have a nice day ..
