Shaam savera- Palak tofu koftas in a Tomato curry

This recipe is originally got from Sanjeev kapoor. I tried this when my friend Madhavi had posted. It tempted me to do this curry. I made some changes . Instead of adding paneer, i made this curry out of Tofu


For koftas;-

Palak/spinach- Boiled - 1 cup
Mashed tofu- 500 gms
green chilli paste- 1 tspn
salt- to taste
Corn flour- 2tbspns
Garam masala- 1/2 tspn

For gravy:-

Tomato puree- 1 cup
Red chilli powder- 1\/2 tspn
Dryred chilli- 2
Cinnamon- 1/2 inch
Dhaniya powder- 1 tspn
Jeera powder- 1 tspn
Kasoori methi powder- 1/2 tspn
Turmeric- 1/2 tspn
Butter- 1 tspn
Garam masala- 1tspn
Garlic- crushed -2 flakes
Whipping cream- 3 tbspns


  • Mix spinach/palak, green chilli paste, salt, and corn flour.( i dint chop the spinach. it is easy to make the koftas without chopping).
  • Mix mashed tofu with garam masala powder and salt, in another bowl and keep it aside.
  • Make spinach patties on your palm and put the mashed tofu mixture in center of spinach to make kofta. do not cover the tofu completely.
  • Deep fry koftas in oil and keep aside.
  • Add some oil in to the pan. Add little butter and add the masala items and dry red chilli. Add the crushed garlic and add the tomato puree and cook in a low flame.
  • Add all the masala powders in to it and finally add whipping cream, salt and kasoori methi powder.
  • boil it for 5 mins.
  • Finally add the spinach tofu koftas in to the curry and serve hot with rotis, naan or paratha.
