Jamun Koftha Curry is very much similar to the usual Koftha Curry we make,but the only difference is I used Jamuns instead of Aloo/mixed veggie Kofthe dumplings.I made Gulab Jamun for ICC October Challenge the previous day I kept few fries Jamuns aside and used them to make Jamun Koftha Curry.
I made Jamuns from Home-made Khova,you can even make Jamuns from normal Instant Jamun Powder.U can check the recipe for making Jamuns here.
Fried Jamuns: 10 no(medium size)
Potato: 2 medium(peeled,diced and boiled)
Onion:1 big (very finely chopped)
Tomato: 2 medium( finely chopped)
Spring Onions:1 bunch(cut into 1/2 inch)
Green Chillies: 5-6(adjust to ur taste)
Ginger Garlic Paste:1 spn
Cashew Paste:1/2 cup(soak 15-20 cashews in water for 30 mins and make a smooth paste)
Kasoor Methi: 1 spn(optional)
Garam Masala Pwd: 3/4 spn
Chilli Pwd: 1.5 spn(I used this to get the color for the dish,u can jst use green chillies even)
Oil: 2 spn
1.In a pan add oil,when hot add chopped onions,fry till onions turn smooth n transculate,now add cut green chillies and ginger garlic paste,fry till the raw flavor is removed.
2.Now add the chopped tomato and cover with a lid,cook till tomato becomes smooth,mix well and add salt stir well,now add the cashew paste and half cup of water mix well and cook till oil seprates.Make sure you mix the mixture in between so that it does not burn.
3.When u see oil is sperating this is when we add garam masala and chilli powder,stir well and cook for another 3-5 mins,after this add diced n boiled potato,cook on medium flame for 5 more mins.
4.Crush kasoor methi leaves to enhance the flavor and add to the curry mix well and add the fried Jamuns,cover and cook for few minutes so the Koftha absorb the juices and become yummy.Finally add cut Spring Onions and turn off the flame.
5.Serve it hot with Chaptathi/Pulka/Naan or any Flavoured Rice like Jeera Rice or jst Masala Rice.
1.I just used the plain Jamuns(as I made them to use as Sweet) to make this curry but U can spice up the jamoons with little salt,chopped onions,chillies and coriander leaves.This adds taste to the jamuns.
2.I made thi curry to go with Masala Rice and choosen this gravy,but u can make any simple tomato gravy and add the Jamun Dumplings.Its all up to ur taste.
