Malai Kofta

Since my husband doesn't care to mix sweet and hot, raisins are a big no, no in curries.For that matter, he does not like sweet tamarind chutney with samosas or chaat.But yes, I complement him completely in all these aspects and I love chaat to death.Anyway,I have made a few changes changes to this recipe like skipping raisins.It tasted out of this world.The addition of mawa powder gives the curry creamy texture and delicate sweetness.

Recipe:Sanjeev Kapoor

I really like biting into raisins in the kofta's...yeah I agree some ppl will not like it its better to avoid the raisins for dem which does not affect the taste of kofta's..But I can't imagine samosas,chaats without that Imli chutney..
That gravy looks so rich and yummy..All I just need now is to get my roti's now to dig in that gorgeous gravy

Addition of mawa is new to me and sounds fantastic, i wonder why i never thought of it as its obvious that adding mava will give me that creamy texture :) Thanks Sri for this fantastic recipe!

Looks delicious, little bit of sweet taste is good in a curry but I know some people don't like that. Looks perfect even without it! :)

Shri, Malai kofta looks very good. I do get that, mixing sweet things in curries is not my favorite too. But tamarind chutney I do like with an extra dash of chili powder.
