How to make Kofta Biryani:

Heat oil in a pan and fry spoonfuls of this paste over medium flame.
Fry till the kofta balls turn golden brown.
Keep aside the kofta balls.
To make the gravy, heat some oil in a pan. Sauté the onion till it turns pink. Now, add tomato puree, ginger, turmeric and chilli powder and cook till the oil separates.
Thereafter, add water and bring it to boil.
Now, put the already prepared kofta balls into it and cook for a few minutes.
Remove from the flame and pour the fresh cream over it.
For making the rice, in a large pan, add the rice, cloves, bay leaves, salt and 2 cups of water.
Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer till the rice is almost cooked. Keep aside.
Now, take a baking dish and grease it with ghee.
Evenly spread a layer of rice on the baking dish and arrange over it a layer of kofta with the gravy. Again, spread another layer of rice.
Now, in a separate pan, combine milk, butter, cardamom powder and saffron. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Once the mixture is boiled, pour it over the layered biryani and cover the dish with an aluminum foil.
Bake the dish in a pre heated oven for about 20 minutes at 200 degrees C.
