To make malai kofta, firstly mash the boiled potatoes, mixed vegetables like beans, carrots, cauliflower, paneer and cream together. Add the salt red chili powder, coriander powder to this mash and mix well. The resulting dough should be firm. Make this dough into balls and put ½ tsp of the nut and raisin mix in the center of each ball. Roll into perfect rounds. Heat the oil kept aside to fry the koftas, on a medium flame. Deep fry these rounds till pale golden in color.
For the gravy, first heat the 3 tbsps of oil in a deep pan and fry the onions till light brown. Grind into a paste along with the tomatoes, onions, ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin and red chili powders. Put this paste back into the pan and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala. Add the poppy seeds powder and nut paste and fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup of warm water. Add salt to it. Gently add the koftas to this sauce/gravy and cook uncovered for 2-3 minutes. Garnish it with coriander and garam masala.
