How to make Lauki Ke Kofta Curry Flavoured With Kasuri Methi

  6. Make a paste of ingredients mentioned under "To Be Ground To Paste" including onions, garlic, ginger, green chillies with a little water in the food processor.

  7. Heat a little oil in a shallow fry pan or kadai. Add dried kasuri methi and cumin seeds. Sauté for about a minute or half, on medium heat.

  8. Add the ground paste to the pan and sauté for about 10 minutes on low heat till the gravy is golden brown in colour.

  9. Now add all the spices and salt. Mix well. Now add tomato purée and sauté till the gravy comes together and looks cooked.

  10. Add about 3 cups of water and let it boil for a few minutes. Once done, check for salt and seasoning. Now add the koftas made earlier in the curry. Cook for few minutes.

  11. Remove from heat and add chopped coriander leaves. Serve Lauki Ke Kofta Flavoured With Kasuri Methi along with Garlic Naan Without Yeast Recipe and Boondi Raita for a weekday meal.
