A Pakistani style meatball curry. Moist meatballs and potatoes are cooked in a thick smooth curry sauce with some basic spices.

 

I grew up eating delicious homemade Pakistani food from my mother. Since I have learned from her I have the same approach to cooking. I like to show that cooking can be easy and with simple ingredients, you can make delicious meals. If you are new to cooking in general or are excited to learn south Asian food, I recommend starting with simple recipes. This is definitely a great recipe to start off with and will quickly become favorites.

There are several methods to cook this curry. but I made it in my style. I have shared a few meatballs curry recipes in my earlier post but this is my another version that is quite super soft, spongy, and juicy meatballs that can be added in many other dishes other than

kofta curry like kadhi koftapalak alootaharipulao, etc

In additional ingredients. I added potatoes with meatballs as my elder brother want potatoes in each meal.a potato lover. if he had the option he would have just eaten potatoes 😊 but if you don’t like can be skipped of your choice.

For the best result follow my detailed step by step photo, instructions, and tips above the recipe card

Recipe notes:

  1. I used 80%  boneless beef meat along with 20% fat for making meatballs Some amount of fat will bring flavor to meatballs and keep them moist. You can also use ground mutton or lamb if you don’t use beef.
  2. Must fry meatballs before putting in gravy to prevent  broken and hard meatballs
  3. Gram flour or roasted chickpea work as a binding agent in meatball but the ratio of roasted chickpea or gram flour in meatballs should not be more than 30% as adding more quantity of binding ingredient your meatballs will turn hard and dry
  4. Grinding meat with onion makes kofta soft and juicy
  5. This curry is great served with rice, naan, chapati/roti, Side of salad would be nice.  If you make it a little spicy you can always serve a side of whipped regular yogurt that has salt/pepper.
