We can substitute meat for cottage cheese/ potato, some carrot and capsicum. Make koftas/ balls.
Substitute chicken with vegetable stock. Add thick coconut cream for vegan recipe.
All steps will remain same except don’t halve the koftas before putting them in curry.

1. Soak cashew nuts and raisins for an hour in a bowl filled with just enough water.
2. Mix ingredients for meatballs and make into balls. 3. Freeze balls for 1/2hour till firm.
4. Heat oil for frying in a pan. 5. Fry meatballs till golden brown. 6. Remove into towels to drain off excess oil. 7. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a vessel, preferably non-stick one. 8. Add cinnamon and cloves. Sauté for a min. 9. Add finely chopped onions and a pinch of salt. 10. Ones it sweats out add ginger garlic paste and green chilli. 11. Let it cook till onion is almost trasparent. Don’t let the onions change colour or the curry will not be white! 12. Add chicken stock and bring to boil.
13. Simultaneously, wipe of excess oil and cut meatballs into halves.
14. Add meatballs and pepper to curry. Let it simmer for a couple of mins on a low heat.
15. Grind cashew and rasins into fine paste.
16. Add paste to the curry and let it cook on a low heat for couple of mins.
17. Last add cream, mix well and off the flames.
18. Now add the garam masala and a pinch of sugar.
19. Adjust gravy to sauce thickness using hot water and check salt.
20. Garnish with chopped cilantro & a pinch of garam masala. Leave aside for 15mins.
