How to Make Malai Kofta Dum

HideShow Media
Shape the meat ball mixture into walnut sized rounds, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Heat the oil and put as many meat balls as fit in comfortably; lower heat to complete cooking. Fry all the meat balls this way.
They will shrink a little and turn a darkish brown.
In the ovenproof dish, put in a layer of the meatballs and cover with a layer of the cream mixture.
Repeat till all the meat balls are in the dish.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for about half an hour.
Garnish with the coriander leaves and serve.
NOTE: Oven Temperature is 325 degree F/ 160 degree C.
