Bread Kofta Curry / Veggie Bread balls in creamy Tomato gravy

Its a celebration weekend for us, my kid's birthday and my birthday. we had great fun and yummy foods. We had a small party at our home with few friends of my H. Its a blasting celebration with all their presence n gifts. After all cooking & cleaning am dead tired so took complete rest for two days and back to routine now. This b'day was really special to me. My blogger friends family made it more special n memorable. Some of my friends sent me surprise gifts, ecards and am overwhelmed reading it. Even brought tears due to over joy and it all showed their love n care on me n my family. Really am blessed to have them all in my life. Would love to keep this friendship for ever and praying God for the same. Thanks to everyone from bottom of my heart.
Now coming to the recipe, bread kofta curry mild rich and delicious curry with bread koftas. The bread koftas are nothing but the Bread Veggie Balls which i posted few weeks back.

Method

  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, add cashews, dry red chilli, ginger, garlic and saute for a minute.
  • Then add roughly chopped onions and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • After that add tomatoes and saute till soft but not too mushy.

  • Now allow this ingredients to cool then grind using little water to a smooth and fine paste.
  • Then heat 1 tbsp oil in a skillet, add cumin seeds wait till it splutter.
  • And add the ground onion-tomato paste and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add red chili powder, cumin powder, corainder powder, enough salt and allow to boil the gravy.
  • Once it starts boiling add garam masala powder, kasoori methi and stir well and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

  • Lastly add fried koftas and finely chopped cilantro and turn off the stove.
  • That's it..Delicious Bread Kofta Curry ready. Serve hot with any rotis/Naan/Puri/Pulao. I served with Multi grain Naan.

Notes:
U can also add the koftas to the curry just before serving.
Adjust spices to your taste, the above mentiond spices level will give u little hot kofta curry.
Add little less salt than the regular amount since the fried koftas will already contain salt in it.
To the same curry recipe instead of kofta balls u can also add paneer cubes/Tofu cubes/blanched cauliflower/Potato/Peas etc.
