Malai Kofta

As you know my husband's favorite snack is cutlet, so one day when i was making cutlet, i included excess aloo and other vegetables while boiling. Immediately it struck my mind "why not malai kofta" :P

Actually what i am trying to say here is making malai kofta is no big different from making cutlet, with the variations from few ingredients !!

Preparation time: 20 mins
cooking time 25 mins
Serves: 2 (Makes 7-8 Koftas)


For KOfta:

  1. 1/2 cup paneer finely grated
  2. Cashewnuts (as per ur wish)
  3. 3 potatoes large boiled, peeled, mashed
  4. 2 carrots Peeled and chopped finely
  5. 8-10 beans peeled and chopped finely
  6. 2 green chillies crushed
  7. coriander finely chopped
  8. 1/2 tsp. garam masala
  9. 1/2 tsp. coriander powder
  10. 1 tsp. red chilli powder
  11. 1/2 cup Maida
  12. Salt to taste
  13. oil to deep fry

  1. Heavy cream about 1/2 cup
  2. 1/4 cup grated paneer
  3. 1/4 cup grounded cashewnuts
  4. 1 Large / 2 small Tomatos
  5. 1 cup chopped onion
  6. 1 tsp. sugar
  7. 1 tsb Ginger garlic paste
  8. pinch of nutmeg powder
  9. 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  10. 1/2 tsp Garam masal powder
  11. salt to taste
  12. Butter for cooking.


  • Take oil in a frying pan and heat it
  • Boil potates peel and mash them
  • Slightly boil beans and carrot as well, make sure to squeez out all the water from the vegetables using a cheese cloth or a dry towel.
  • mix the rest of the ingredients together
  • Please note, do not add or fry the vegetables like beans and carrot and add it to the mixture, because it does not allow the panner to bind with mixture and the kofta's would break while frying
  •  After adding all the ingredients make a fine dough, if you see the dough is having lots of moisture add few bread crumbs to it.
  • Make the dough into small balls 
  • Now cover the dough balls in the maida flour and deep fry in the oil until its gets golden brown.
  • Yummy Kofta's are ready.


  • heat 1 tbsp butter in a pan and fry the onions till light brown, then add tomatos
  • Grind this into fine paste
  • Add all the spices mentioned above to the paste, once the raw smell is gone add the grounded cashewnuts and paneer
  • Cover it with a lid for 2-3 mins so that paneer would get all the flavours.
  • Once the gravy is cooked, add heavy milk and bring to mix well.
  • FInally add the kofta's and switch of the stove.
  • The heat from the gravy will help the kofta's to soak in it.
