In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup of grated paneer, 2 boiled potatoes and mash them well. Add salt, garam masala, chat masala, salt, black pepper powder, and a little bit of maida. Combine everything well and make a flat ball and stuff it with chopped dry fruits and make small lemon sized balls.

Coat with leftover all purpose flour to get a crispy coating.Deep fry the koftas on medium heat till they turn golden brown.Flip in between to get uniform browning.Once the koftas turn golden brown, drain to a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Then in a large kadai, take 1-2 tsp of oil and add jeera, cardamon, cloves, kali mirch, chopped onions and saute well. Add cashews in it and saute well.

Next add ginger-garlic paste then saute till the raw smell of ginger-garlic disappears. Now add chopped tomatoes and saute for a minute or two.

Then cook them covered for at least 5 minutes till completely cooked. Turn off the flame and allow the mixture to cool completely before you blend them to a smooth puree.

Now in a large kadai, take 2 tsp of oil and add bay leaf,cinnamon sticks till they turn fragrant. Now add the blended puree prepared previously.

Boil the paste for 3 minutes on medium flame and keep stirring continuously else they will start popping out and create a mess.

Time to add dry spices like turmeric powder, chilli powder,kashmiri lal mirch and coriander powder. Fry the masala on medium flame and make sure you do not burn them.

Add ¼ cup of fresh homemade cream (malai) and cover for 10 minutes until ghee starts floating in the kadai. Subsequently the spices added earlier will get mixed uniformly and give a good smell.

Now add garam masala, salt to taste and some water. Adjust the consistency of gravy and give a good mix and bring it to a boil.

Finally add roasted (on tawa)crushed kasuri methi.Place the koftas into the serving plate and pour the gravy over it. Enjoy malai kofta with hot Ajwaini naan.
