    Cooking Instructions For Aloo Paneer Kofta

    1. Combine all ingredients except the dried fruits in a bowl.
    2. If necessary, add more salt or spice powders.
    3. Make a medium-sized ball out of the mixture and flatten it slightly.
    4. Put the dry fruits in the center.
    5. Cover the dry fruits completely with the edges pointing toward the center.
    6. Seal the kofta well, so they don’t break when frying. Prepare all the paneer ka koftas this way.
    7. The oil needs to be heated in a pan or kadai before deep frying.
    8. Add the stuffed koftas and fry till golden brown from all over. Remove excess oil from them by blotting them with paper tissues.
    9. Aloo paneer kofta tastes best hot or warm, accompanied by either green chutney or sweet chutney, and topped with chaat masala.
    10. Malai kofta curry can also be prepared with them.

    Recipe Notes How To Cook Aloo Paneer Ka Kofta

    • I added 1.5 tbsp cornflour/corn starch to the kofta mixture, and the koftas did not break. However, when making koftas, just add a small ball of the mixture first in the oil and if it does not break, then move ahead with frying the rest of the koftas.
    • If the paneer kofta does break, then add some more cornflour to bind them well.
    • The oil has to be medium hot. Too hot oil will brown the paneer kofta quickly, with the inside remaining uncooked. On the other hand, warm oil will make the paneer koftas soak oil and become greasy. The texture in the latter case also would not be good.

    If making aloo paneer kofta for fasting or vrat

    • Use rock salt (sendha namak) instead of regular salt.
    • Substitute the cornflour with fasting flours like water chestnut flour (singhare ka atta), buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta), or arrowroot flour.
    • Skip adding garam masala powder, chaat masala powder, or any other ingredient which don’t use for religious fasting at your home.
