Kofta Curry {Meatball Curry}

I'm a huge fan of delicious aromatic curries and this one definitely falls under that category.
It is my mother's recipe. She's been teaching me a lot of desi everyday recipes.
This one is so easy, specially when you pre-make the meatballs.
For this recipe..
You'll need:
(For Kofta/Meatballs)
1 kg of Beef (you can use any meat you like)
1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
7-10 Green chilies
Salt to taste
1 tsp Red chili powder
1/4 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp of Turmeric
1 tsp of white poppy seed (washed and soaked in warm water)

(For The Curry)
2 large Onions sliced
2 medium Tomatoes
7-10 Green chilies 
1 tbsp of Ginger Garlic paste
Salt to taste
2 tsp of Red chili powder (adjust accordingly)
1/2 tsp of Coriander powder
1/4 tsp of Turmeric
1/2 tsp Clove
1/2 tsp of Black pepper seed
1 stick of Cinnamon 
2-3 Black cardamom

Pass the meat and white poppy seed through a meat grinder.
Add all the spices, Mix and blend it. It should really come together and look sort of like dough.
Make meatballs by tightly squeezing the meat. If you do this lightly, the meatballs will break once they are in the curry.
Put in freezer for an hour.
Shallow fry on medium heat till golden.

At this stage you can freeze the meatballs. First freeze them in trays till they are frozen solid, than store them in a box or polythene.

If you are making the curry right than, proceed accordingly.

Heat 1/2 cup of oil in a pot, Add Onion.

Fry till lightly golden brown. Take out.

Add tomatoes, chilies and fried onion to a blender. Pulse to make a paste.

In the same pot add Ginger garlic paste. When golden and fragrant add the tomato, onion and chili paste...

...the spices as well.

Cook till the oil separates.

Add the cooked meats balls, cook for a minute or two.

Add 2 1/2 to 3 mugs of water. (or to the amount you want the curry)

Cook till the hurry is at the consistency you like.

Add a tsp of Garam Masala powder and fresh coriander just before taking out in a dish.
