How to make Paneer Koftas In Spinach Sauce:
  • For the koftas, take the boiled potatoes in a bowl and mash them properly. Add garam masala, corn flour/plain flour, cashew nuts, grated paneer and salt to it. Mix well.
  • Now, rub both your palms with a little oil. This would help you to make round balls of the mixture, without it sticking to your palms.
  • Make small round balls using the mixture.
  • Take some oil in the pan and heat it. Fry the balls prepared in the oil, till they turn brown. Keep aside the fried kofta balls.
  • Now, take water in a bowl and boil it. Add spinach leaves and blanch them.
  • Blend the blanched spinach leaves, tomatoes, garlic, onion, ginger and 1/2 cup water in a mixer. Mix until a fine paste is formed.
  • Heat butter in a kadhai (pan) and add the bay leaves. Sauté for a while and then pour the fine paste. Now, add turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala and chopped corianders.
  • Keep stirring continuously, so that the masala does not stick to the kadhai.
  • Sauté till the oil separates from the masala. Now, add powdered cashew nuts and salt in the fried masala and mix well.
  • Add 2 to 3 cups of water into the fried masala.
  • When it starts boiling, slowly add the kofta balls into it.
  • Lower the heat and allow the kofta balls to be cooked with the sauce for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy the yummy paneer kofta in spinach sauce with parathas or rice.

I used to make this recipe in a slightly different way. I added Kaju in the onion. tomato, garlic gravy. Later I put Spinach paste and half bowl of curd. This is indeed a very tasty recipe.
