PALAK KOFTA GRAVY|PALAK KOFTA CURRY RECIPE


Palak kofta gravy we first tasted in a restaurant in Vietnam and as i mentioned in the Aloo capsicum gravy post, this is another restaurant style gravy which you can try at home . I didn’t deep fry the Koftas but coked in the paniyaram pan as i did in the Cabbage Kofta recipe. We had this with Lachha parathas which i have posted here.

FOR GRAVY
  • Chop the onions finely. In a pan add oil and saute the onions till they become light brown.

  • Meanwhile wash and chop the palak and and cook it hot water for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp of sugar while cooking to retain the colour.
  • When it is cool, take out the water and make the spinach into a fine puree. Reserve the water to use it for gravy.

NOTES:
  1. Green chilli can be added instead of red chilli powder. If adding green chilli grind with the palak.
  2. You can replace cream instead of milk.
  3. Koftas can be deep fried too instead of making in paniyaram pan.
  4. I have kept the koftas in the gravy for 3 hours and it didn’t break in the gravy.

  22. I am new to cooking.. So it may sound silly.. But still.. Whether salt must be added only to gravy or for kofta balls too?

    1. Not at all a silly question. You can add little salt to koftas and to the gravy also. This will make it taste better to avoid it making bland
