Heat up the oil for deep frying.
Roll out the balls from the dough you prepared and stuff the dry fruit mix in the centre.
Fry the koftas and if they break in hot oil then dust them with dry maida before putting them in.
For the gravy:
Fry some onion, ginger garlic paste and tomato paste.
Mix the cashew nut paste with 2 Tbsp of warm milk and pour it into the paste.
Except kasturi methi, add all the dry masala into the paste and saute till the oil separates itself.
Add one and a half cup of water and simmer the gravy till it's done.
Add cream/malai, 1 tbsp of sugar and kasturi methi.
Simmer the gravy till the oil starts separating and once it's done, put the fried koftas into the gravy and serve hot with chapattis.
