Chicken Kofta Curry

This is completely healthy recipe of chicken.
Ingredients :

For the koftas :

250 gms boneless chicken
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp dry red chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder
salt to taste
1 tsp garam masala powder

Grind the above ingredients together to a not so fine paste. Mix with 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and make small lemon balls out of it.
Boil water in a wok and drop the balls for 5 minutes when water startes boiling. Boil about 5 minutes and then take the koftas out. Chicken will be firm and will not break when you add to gravy.
Take 1 tsp oil in another pan and slightly toss the koftas to give them a brownish colour on the outer skin.

For the gravy :

You can use any gravy you want. I preferred this as I had the ingredients readily available in my kitchen.

3 small onion ground to fine paste along with 1/2 inch ginger and 6 garlic pods
3 small tomatoes ground to paste
1 cup choppec methi
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 green chili chopped
1 tsp coriander powder
salt to taste
1 tsp garam masala powder
salt to taste
1 tsp cumin seeds
4-5 curry leaves
2 tsp oil

Heat oil in a wok. Add cumin seeds, green chilies and curry leaves. Add all powdered slices and the onion paste.
Cook for 5 minutes. Add tomato paste. Cook for 5 minutes more. Add chopped methi leaves and cook till you smell the aroma of methi leaves. Add 1 glass of water and salt at this point and bring it to a boil.
Add koftas as this point and serve hot with rotis.
