Paneer Koftas In Palak Gravy

I saw this recipe in a magazine recently, it  looked quiet interesting to me so I thought let me give it a try.Technically it is somewhat same as palak paneer because the gravy is the same and paneer is also the same except that it is made in to a kofta in this recipe which makes it different and more tasty.It came out quiet well.It will taste great with some Nan's.
The original recipes says to add some cashew powder in the gravy(palak)at the end but i didn't since it was already rich and fried koftas in it so i just skipped that step.You can try if you want to!!!

You will Need
  • Two Bunches of Palak or Spinach
  • One Chopped Onion
  • One Tomato Chopped
  • One tsp of Ginger Garlic Paste
  • Half a tsp of Coriander powder
  • Half a tsp of Cumin powder
  • Half a tsp Chilli powder
  • Half a tsp of Garam Masala powder
  • Salt to Taste
For the Koftas
  • One litre of Milk
  • Two tbs of Maida

How To

1.Wash,chop the palak and boil it in water with Salt.

2.Cool it and remove the excess water and Puree it in the blender.
