I love this product.Try this Korma Curry Mix .


Cooking Method:

1. Combine all the ingredients mentioned for kofta/ meat ball. Make round ball out of this and deep fry on medium low flame .

2. Heat oil in a wok and add bay leaf, cardamom, cinnamon.Fry for a while, then add onion paste ginger paste, garlic paste, chili powder , Shaan Korma Curry Mix( 1 Tbl spoon), salt and cook adding water little by little.. Beat yogurt with water and add . Cook for a little while then add hot water and add in the kofta/ meatballs. Cover the lid. Cook on medium heat.

3. Make sure the gravy gets into the koftas..When the gravy is reducing to your desired consistency add the bell peppers if u wish. Sprinkle garam masala powder .Cover the lid and turn off the stove keeping the wok on the stove..After few minutes oil will separate and your Beef Kofta Korma Curry is ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tips/ Notes:

1. While making Korma curry , try to use sweet yogurt along with regular white yogurt. Trust me it enhances the taste. Like , if the recipe calls for 1/4th cup of yogurt take 1/8 th cup sweet yogurt +1/8 th cup regular white yogurt= 1/4 th cup of yogurt.

2. If You are not using Shaan Korma Curry Mix , then add a special garam masala powder the same quantity as mentioned in the recipe. For that Grind , cumin, cardamom, whole coriander, mace ( joyeetree/javetri) , Jaifol( nutmeg), fennel, clove, white/black pepper together into a fine powder and use accordingly.

3. This Kofta can be used in various recipes..Like you can try the Koftas in Korma curry style, you can use it in oriental way or even plain curry way..Either way it’s great!!!!!!!

1. Blanching is an easy technique that many cooks use to keep vegetables crisp and tender. By boiling vegetables briefly and chilling them in ice water. Blanching preserves texture, color and flavor. Remember You don’t have to boil it thoroughly, just put the veggies in hot boiling water, keep them for a while, until they r half done, then drain the water and keep them in chilled water .

2.Remember the more hour you marinate the more tender and tasty will be the meat..enjoy..:)
