Instructions to follow to make exotic Nargisi kofta curry:

• You need to take a pan with some water and boil the eggs first. Make sure the eggs are hard-boiled. Peel the eggshell. Keep them aside.

• Take a food processor for blending your mutton keema well. This blending procedure makes the keema tender and softer.

• Transfer the blended keema to a bowl. Now start adding ginger-garlic paste, cornflour, garam masala, oil, salt, coriander powder, red chili powder, and turmeric. Use your hands to mix everything nicely.

• Time to divide the keema mixture into 4 portions.

• Now take 1 egg and a portion of your mutton keema mix and start wrapping the mutton keema around the hardboiled egg, use your hands for forming a casing (an even one) around the egg until the egg is covered completely. Repeat the process with the remaining eggs and place them on a plate.

• Heat a pan. Add oil to it. Deep fry the mutton keema wrapped eggs until they turn golden brown.

• Time to make the gravy. Take a big pan and heat oil.

• Add bay leaf and dry red chili. Roast the chili for a minute and after that, add chopped onions. You need to fry the onions until they become light brown.

• Add green chili and ginger-garlic paste. Fry everything a bit until the raw smell of ginger-garlic goes away. Now add tomato puree, turmeric, coriander, cumin, and red chili powder. Fry everything until the oil starts separating from the masala.

• Whisk curd with salt. Add it to the mixture. Give it a nice mix and add one cup of water (warm). Allow it to boil.

• After it bubbles slowly, add fried keema wrapped eggs to the gravy. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes only.

• Add garam masala powder and kasuri methi.

• Turn off the heat and slice your koftas in half horizontally.
