For the koftas
Crumble the paneer and knead very well.
Mix the paneer, plain flour, baking powder, chillies, coriander and salt.
Shape into small balls and deep fry in ghee. Keep aside these koftas.
For the gravy
Cut the tomatoes into big pieces, add 4 teacups of water and cook. When soft, prepare a soup by passing through a sieve.
Heat the ghee in a vessel and fry the paste very well.
Add the chilli powder and fry again for 1 minute.
Add the tomato soup, cream and salt and boil the gravy for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
How to serve
Just before serving, add the koftas. Serve hot with parathas, puris or rice.
Note: You can add 1 teacup of boiled green peas to the gravy if you like.
