Palak Paneer Kofta

I got a big bunch of palak thinking I’ll make palak paneer for dinner last night but then I changed my mind and thought of trying something else. Me and  my husband used to have this gravy at a place in Kalyani Nagar 4-5 years back later that restaurant got closed. This was our regular gravy which we ordered so remembering the old days I thought of recreating it at home.

Its bit of time taking but worth the taste in the end.

Kofta recipie

  1. Palak / spinach – 3 cups
  2. green chilly – 3
  3. ginger garlic paste
  4. salt as per taste

Wash spinach and make puree out of all these ingredients Keep aside 2 tablespoon of this spinach puree and add  rest of this puree to the roasted gram flour.
