Gulab Jamun Kofta Curry


One of my favourite item in the restaurant menu is Malai Kofta Curry-'Fried vegetable koftas in rich creamy gravy'

Always wanted to find some easy way to do my favourite dish.

Gulab Jamun mix is always stacked up in the pantry..a classic indian dessert!
I have always enjoyed eating the fried jamuns before dropping them in sugar syrup with some ketchup!Everybody says..oops crazy!

Thought of dropping gulab jamun in rich gravy to make some easy milky kofta curry.Also thought stuffing vegetables will be a better option.It turned out to be very easy and  very tasty.

Stuffing
1 cup boiled mashed potatoes
1/4 cup boiled frozen/fresh peas
1 Tbspn  grated carrot
1 Tbspn chopped cashews
1/4 tspn coriander powder
Salt to taste

Let's combine and mix well

Koftas








1) Add milk and make dough(little stiffer than regular jamun) and leave it  covered for 15 min.
2)Knead the dough and fill in the stuffing about 1 tspn and close.Make sure its properly closed.
3)Drop them in little less than medium hot oil and fry just like gulab jamun otherwise it will not be cooked inside.

Gravy

2 Big Onion diced
2 Tomatoes diced
2 garlic pod
2 Tbspn presoaked cashews
2 Tbspn oil

whole garam masala for gravy
1 bay leaf
4 cloves
2 inch cinnamon


1)Heat oil in a kadai(I use non stick).Add  whole garam masala fry for few seconds then comes the diced onion,garlic.Fry till 3/4th cooked then add tomatoes and fry for 2 min.

2)Grind the onion tomato mix with presoaked cashews to a very very smooth paste .


 Kofta Curry

1 Tbspn oil
1 tspn ginger garlic paste
1/4th tspn turmeric
1 tspn coriander powder
1 tspn garam masala
1 Tbspn kasuri methi(crush it in hand to enhance flavour)
2 Tbspn heavy whipping cream
1 Tbspn cashew pieces(shallow fried in ghee/butter)
1 tspn honey
salt to taste
prepared koftas and gravy


1)Heat oil in a pan add 1/4th tspn turmeric,1 tspn ginger garlic paste and fry for few seconds.

2)Add the gravy along with coriander and garam masala powders.Adjust water if too thick  and allow it boil for 5 min.Now add honey and allow 2 min to boil.

3)Lets add the koftas and cook it in medium for 4 min.

4)Add the cream and mix well,finally add the fried cashews and enjoy with some rice/poori/roti..Love the pieces of cashews in the creamy gravy!I usually make it  with poori and love the combo.





Note:I used half of the 200g  jamun mix.If you boil milk regularly and store the cream of milk(called kene in kannada) which u get on the surface of milk,you can grind & add that too.
