Korma-Curry

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!!!!!!!

Not only Rohu ,you can use any other big fish to make this “out of the world” kindda dish.

    10. Breadcrumbs enough to bind and shape the kofta, around 1/3 rd one-third cup

Procedure:

    1.Boil your fish with garlic/ginger paste, turmeric and salt. While boiling use less water, because fish exerts water and only a little amount is needed to boil them.

    2. Take out all the bones and put into a bowl. Combine mashed potato, chili powder, garam masala powder, salt, fried onion, beaten egg and bread crumbs with it.

    3. Make round balls and deep fry and set aside . But since it will be used in Korma Curry, don’t fry them for long. The color needs to be light.

    Enjoy your Kofta Korma Curry!!!!! Goes best with Polau/ Pilaf or Khichuri!

Tips/ Notes:

1. In the kofta curry, try to use sweet yogart along with regular yogart as it enhances the taste. If you don’t have sweet yogurt at home, don’t worry.. Just mix a little sugar and tomato ketchup with your yogurt.. It works fantastic as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. You can make so many different dishes with this basic kofta recipe. You may add it in your oriental style sweet n sour fish ball or likewise. You can cook it in coconut milk or you can just add it in curry. In these cases just add turmeric powder while cooking it like curry or in coconut milk. But if you use coconut milk, omit the yogurt.

3. As I said before, this basic kofta recipe can be used in so many recipes.I made fish chop/kabab with it. Just flatten the balls and deep fried it like chop and kababs on medium low heat until nice brown!!!!

4. You can store this kofta/kabab in the deep fridge for a atleast 2 weeks. But for that don’t fry them. Just take them out when needed, fry and use it the way you want!!!!!!!!
