Murgh Kofta curry

Murgh Kofta is an elaborate recipe if you cook it the traditional way. But time is a big constraint these days and that makes me invent quicker recipes. 

Here is my 30 min chicken kofta recipe (I bought ready to cook koftas from the supermarket). I especially liked the texture of the gravy and the richness from the cashews that go into this recipe.

  1. Deep fry the chicken koftas and keep aside.
  2. Take 1 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker. Add 2 roughly cut onions and saute till translucent. Add 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste, 1 inch piece of cinamon, 1 -2 cardamom seeds, 2-3 cloves and saute for a minute. 
  3. Add 2 roughly chopped tomatoes, around 10 cashew nuts, 2 tsp red chilli powder, pinch of turmeric powder, 1 tsp garam masala powder, 3 tbsp curd,  salt, water according to taste and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  4. Now let out the steam of the pressure cooker and open the cooker. Blend the above mixture in a blender to get a smooth paste. '
  5. Add the koftas and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.  Add 1 tsp garam masala powder and salt if needed.
  6. Serve with Chapatis/roti.
