The preparation time for Chicken Kofta is approximately 30 minutes, while the cooking time is around 45 minutes. So, set aside about an hour and a half for this delightful culinary adventure.

Preparing the Ground Chicken

Start by finely chopping the onion, mincing the garlic, and grating the ginger. These aromatic ingredients will form the flavor base of your Chicken Kofta. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, chopped onion, minced garlic, grated ginger, and chopped cilantro. Add a generous pinch of garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, and salt to the chicken mixture. Mix everything thoroughly until the spices are evenly distributed, creating a fragrant and well-seasoned blend. With clean hands, shape the chicken mixture into small, round kofta balls. Ensure they are uniform in size for even cooking.

 Frying the Kofta

Heat some cooking oil in a pan over medium heat. Gently place the chicken kofta into the hot oil and fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy on all sides. Remove them and set them aside.

Preparing the Gravy

In the same pan, add more oil if needed and sauté some finely chopped onions until they become translucent. Add garlic and ginger, then stir in a blend of tomato sauce, yogurt, and heavy cream. This will create a luscious and creamy gravy for your kofta.

Simmering the Kofta in Gravy

Return the fried kofta to the pan, allowing them to simmer in the flavorful gravy. This will help the kofta absorb the rich flavors of the sauce.
