Palak kofta recipe is a simple and healthy dish from North Indian cuisine gravy recipe prepared with spinach and paneer balls. The recipe has a strong similarity to the popular Punjabi cuisine malai kofta recipe with same gravy but with different ingredients for kofta balls.
There are several kofta curry recipes and perhaps it can be prepared with almost every vegetable. Palak kofta curry is one of such recipe with spinach puree is mixed with paneer and boiled/mashed potatoes. Apart from the awesome taste, spinach kofta curry is a healthy choice for the traditional kofta curry.
The recipe that I have shown here is a simple and healthy palak kofta recipe, but there are so many variations to this classic recipe. In this recipe, there are main two steps to make this curry at home- 1. Making kofta and 2. Making Curry. I have prepared the spinach puree separately and mixed with grated paneer and boiled potatoes. These are afterward shaped to balls followed by deep frying till a crispy outer layer of cooked spinach before using it in the creamy gravy. The other easy method is to finely chop the palak leaves, sauté them with onions and then mix it with paneer and potato mixture. Further, the gravy can also be extended by adding the spinach puree to the gravy very similar to palak paneer or any spinach based curries. It is a healthy Palak kofta curry which can be relished with many types of Indian bread like Chapathi, Roti, Naan, Tandoori roti, or Jeera rice etc.
