Ingredients for Paneer Kofta
- 1 litre milk
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice,
- 4 tablan
- 1 large onion
- 2 medium sized tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder,
- 2 green chillies, oil to deep fry and salt to taste.
Finely chop the onion and tomato separately. Heat 600ml milk in a pan and when it’s boiling simmer and add the lemon juice and stir briefly. The milk will curdle and the whey will separate from the paneer (cottage cheese). Strain this and transfer the paneer to a thin white cloth and make a small bundle and let it hang for a while, this will drain out all the water completely. Now make dough of this paneer and make small balls. Then take the gram flower and coat each ball with the gram flour. Take a frying pan and pour oil enough for deep frying and fry these balls till they turn golden brown. Keep turning them so that they are fried evenly and properly. Take another pan and pour two tablespoons oil and bring to heat. Once it’s nicely heated up add the onions and sauté until they turn golden brown. Add turmeric and red chilly powder. Follow this with the tomatoes and sauté till the oil begins to leave the edges of the pan. Now add the milk that’s left and keep stirring until it boils. Let it boil for about five minutes and then add the paneer balls and cook for another two minutes. You can also order it online using zomato coupons.
