Baked Cabbage Paneer Koftas in Makhani Gravy

March 18, 2014

This is a healthy version of making koftas. I make this recipe very often and decided to post it since I again made this for Holi lunch. These koftas can be prepared a day or two before and the gravy can be prepared whenever you want. These keep fresh in the fridge for a week.

For Koftas 2 Cups Cabbage shredded
1/2 Cup Paneer grated ( I used tofu)
3/4 Cup Besan ( Chick pea flour)
1 teaspoon Ginger Garlic paste
1 Green chilly finely chopped
1 teaspoon Kacha Masala
2 Tablespoons Coriander leaves finely chopped
Salt to taste

For the Gravy
1 Small onion finely chopped
3 Flakes garlic finely chopped
1 Inch piece ginger finely chopped
1 Green chilly finely chopped
1 Bay leafy finely chopped
1/2 Teaspoon garam masala powder
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt to taste
1 Tablespoon Oil + 1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Cup Makhani Gravy

To make Koftas

In a bowl add Cabbage,paneer/tofu, ginger garlic paste,green chilly, kacha masala, coriander leaves,salt and besan. Mix this without adding any water ( the water content in the cabbage will be sufficient to bind).Now make small balls of cabbage mixture and place it an inch apart in a greased baking tray. Bake it at 180 degree for 15 to 20 mins or until slightly brown. These Koftas are crisp outside and soft inside.

To make the Gravy
Heat oil + butter in a kadai, add the bay leaf, onions, ginger, garlic green chilly and fry well. When the onions are light brown add the garam masala powder, salt, sugar and the the makhani gravy, fry well add water to adjust the consistency and let it boil till oil floats.

To serveArrange the koftas in a serving bowl pour the gravy garnish it with fresh cream and chopped coriander. Serve hot with rice or rotis.
