    2. Whisk 2 tablespoon all purpose flour and 4 tablespoon water and keep aside. this mixture prevents the cheese balls to break while frying.

    4. Heat the oil to fry the Koftas, on a medium flame. Deep fry these rounds till pale golden in color.
    5. Drain on paper towels and keep aside.
    6. Heat the 2 tbsp of oil in a deep pan and fry the onions till light brown. Grind these onions into a paste along with ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin and red chilli powders.
    7. Put this paste back into the pan and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala.
    8. Add tomato and nut paste and saute for couple of minutes. Add 1/2 cup of cream and one cup of warm water to this masala to form a sauce/gravy (the sauce for this dish is meant to be thick so do not add too much water).
    9. Bring the sauce/gravy to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Gently add the Koftas to this sauce/gravy and cook uncovered for 2 - 3 minutes.
    10. Turn off the heat and garnish with chopped cilantro and cream. Serve with hot naan bread or rice
