    aloo kathal kofta currySuggestions:

    • Oil should be sufficiently hot to deep fry the koftas otherwise they will absorb too much of oil.
    • Add salt into the gravy only after it starts boiling again otherwise the cream will get curdled.
    • Add cream when it comes to normal temperature, don’t add chilled cream into the gravy.
    • After adding cream into the masala, keep stirring constantly until it comes to the boil again. Do the same after adding water into it.
