About this recipe:Koftas can be made with fish, chicken, beef or lamb meat that has been minced or made into a thick paste. Beef Kofta ( beef balls) are prepared for parties or large family gatherings. It tastes great with jeera pulao ( cumin pilaf), white pulao ( white pilaf) or parathas.
Mix the minced beef with onion and green chilli slices, mint and coriander leaves. Add 1 teaspoons of ginger and garlic pastes, salt and lemon extract. Mix well and set aside for 30 minutes. If the beef mixture becomes a bit soft, add the biscuit crumbs before marinating.
Make 20-25 small sized balls out of the minced beef mixture.
Heat 2 cups of oil for deep frying the meat balls. Fry until the balls turn brown.
Set aside the fried meat balls.
Heat a pan with 3 tablespoon of oil. Add the onion paste, 1/2 teaspoons of ginger and garlic pastes, along with the green chilli paste. Also add salt and yoghurt and stir well. Cook until the water of the yoghurt dries up a bit and the oil starts to simmer and float on top.
Now add the beef balls, a few at a time. When the curry sauce starts to make bubbles, add the green chillies and sprinkle the sugar.
Turn the heat down, and cook for 10-15 minutes until the water dries up to form a gravy with the oil simmering and floating on top.
