Murgir Kofta Curry / Chicken Kofta Curry

 Murgir kofta Curry 

This is a simple Chicken Kofta Curry to be enjoyed with steamed rice or paratha. Here I have taken boneless chicken pieces and ground the chicken pieces into a paste to make the kofta. I have added the Chicken Koftas into the curry without frying. 

For the Kofta 


350 grams Boneless Chicken pieces 

1 small size Onion sliced 

1 Green Chilli 

1 Garlic 

1 small piece of Ginger 

Few Mint Leaves 

Few Coriander Leaves 

1/2  tsp Cumin seed powder 

1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder 

Salt to taste 


Take a food chopper or a grinder jar, add all the ingredients and use the pulse button on the mixer few times. Take a lime size portion of the Keema and make a ball. Repeat the process with the remaining keema. Keep the keema balls in the fridge. 

For the Wet Paste 


2 small Onions sliced 

2 small Tomatoes chopped 

5 Garlic Cloves 

1 small size Ginger piece

1 Green Chilli 


Take a grinder jar, add all the above ingredients and grind all the ingredients into a paste 

For the Murgir Kofta Curry 


Keema Balls

1 small Onion sliced 

3 Medium size Potatoes cut into medium size chunks 

1 Green Chilli 

Few Coriander leaves for garnish 

1 tsp Turmeric powder 

1 tsp Coriander powder 

1 tsp Cumin powder 

1 tsp Kashmiri Chilli powder 

1 tsp Garam Masala powder 

1 tsp Sugar 

Salt to taste 

2 Bay leaves 

1/2 tsp Cumin seeds

Wet paste

2 tbsp of Curd 

1 tsp Ghee

3 tbsp Mustard Oil 


Take a wok or a pot, add oil, let the oil heat up, reduce the flame, add the cumin seeds, green chilli and bay leaves. Sauté for some few minutes, until the cumin seeds crack. Add the onion and fry until light brown in colour. Add the potatoes, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the wet paste, stir and cook the masala until the oil realises from the masala. Add the curd and all the dry powder masala, salt and sugar. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of water, stir and cover the pot. Let the curry simmer until the potatoes are half cooked. Now add the keema balls. Let it cook until the potatoes and keema balls are cooked. Drizzle ghee and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve it hot with hot steamed rice.
