Koftas are really nice. Howsoever the gravy wasn''t so convincing. try the balls as starter.

Tarla Dalal    Thank you for your review, we have tried this recipe here many times and the gravy is really nice. We hope you have made the fresh tomato pulp like this- you should blanch the tomatoes , peel and deseed and then blendin a mixer till smooth. if there is any step you need help in , we are ready to help, do let us know.

Raunak Bajaj    Probably bcoz of the difference in pulp preparation method. Can you please let me know what is the difference between preparing pulp without blanching and with blanching. Thanks. Will surely try it again.

Always when making any gravy use blanched tomatoes and then peel, deseed and blend, they will always give a great taste and follow the recipe exactly. we are sure you will not be disappointed. Do let us know how you liked it. Happy Cooking !!
