  • Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool. You can remove the whole spices as they do not grind well.
  • Grind the meat in a food processor along with the green chillies, and coriander leaves.

  • Remove and drain the excess oil on kitchen towels. Set aside.

Making the Korma

  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions and green chili till the onions are translucent.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell has vanished.

  • Add the yogurt and stir well.
  • Add in the kofta balls and cook on medium low flame and stir very gently.
  • Be extra careful as the koftas will easily break if you stir too much.
