For Making Koftas:

For Making Gravy:
Heat oil in a pan,when hot add ginger garlic paste fry till the raw flavor is removed,add cut green chllies and fry for 2 mins.Now add the prepared onion paste and fry till oil seprates,add the almond paste,mix and add salt and pepper powder to taste,add cream ,mix well and bring it to a boil,now add the beaten curd,mix and cook it on low flame for 4-5 mins.Sprinkle Garam masala and remove from flame.

When done take the gravy in to a bowl and add the koftas,wait for 5 mins this helps the koftas to absorb the gravy,serve hot with Chapathi/Pulka.
