  1. To Prepare The Koftas
    Add the chopped cabbage and scrambled paneer in a wide bowl and add salt.
  2. Mix well and keep aside for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, squeeze out the extra water as much as you can and keep it aside. Add red chilli powder, garam masala, little salt, besan into it and mix well.
  3. Now start making balls. If you still can’t bind this properly, add 1 to 2 tablespoons more of besan to the cabbage paneer mixture and start making balls.
  4. Heat a paniyaram pan, and add little oil to this and start cooking the kofta balls in a medium to low flame. Cook all sides by flipping it around till it becomes golden brown. Koftas are ready. Keep this aside.

To Prepare The Gravy

  1. Heat oil in a pan and sauté onions and garlic till the onions turn brown. Grind this into a smooth paste along with tomatoes, chilli powder, kasuri methi and tomato ketchup.
  2. In a pan add oil and add the ground masala. When the oil floats on top, add the milk and add enough water for the gravy. Don’t fret if the gravy is thin, it will thicken once the koftas are added to it. Add garam masala to this and mix well.
  3. When the koftas are completely cool, add to the hot gravy and switch off the flame. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with chapthis.


Allow the cabbage koftas to soak in the gravy for a while before you serve.

Ensure that the water is completely squeezed out from the cabbage and paneer mixture before shaping them into koftas.


This delicious dish is healthy and filling, uses very little oil and is perfect for a healthy dinner.
