Vegetable Meatballs in Butter Masala Sauce

Its very easy to make butter masala gravy at home, you just need some basic ingredients and mix well and you are done, I have used meatballs in it but you can use chicken, paneer, mix vegetables and its done, only time consuming in this recipe is when you have to sieve the gravy once its cold , but the outcome is awesome so its all worth it. I have take this recipe from Rohan Bhatt from Foodaholics groups in Facebook.

Ingredients : 

2 cups diced tomatoes
1 cup diced onions
1/2 cup cashews
4 whole dry red chilies (De seeded)
5 vegetarian meatballs
2 tbsp butter
1 bay leaf
4 cloves
4 green elichi pods
2 small sticks of cinnamon
1 tbsp each ginger and garlic paste
1 tbsp honey
Salt as per taste

Method :

Heat oil in pan, add tomatoes, onions, cashews and dry chilies and all whole masala in it.

Add glass of water and cook on low flame for 20-30 minutes.

Switch off the flames and take out , bay leaf, cinnamon.

When mixture is cool , make  a puree of it , no extra water needed.

In the same pan, add 2 tbsp butter, when its hot, add ginger garlic paste.

Either you can sieve the gravy and keep it in different container or you can directly sieve it in pan.

Add water and let the gravy boil for few minutes.

Add honey and salt.

Add meatballs  / paneer / chicken what ever you are adding and cook for few minutes.

In the end , add crushed kasoori methi and enjoy hot with home made tandori roti or paratha or rice.

I had it with home made tandori roti.

Soy Chaap Tikka Masala

So I used half of my can for soy chaap to make Mediterranean bowl, rest I used it for 3 different ways. I made tikka, then use some of the tikka to go in the gravy and still had the leftovers to make wrap. So One recipe serves three different purpose.

For the tikka its very simple recipe, the way everyone make paneer or chicken tikka , its the same recipe.

Ingredients : 


6 tbsp Dahi (yogurt)
2 tbsp Kashmiri chili powder
1/2 Tsp chat masala
1 tsp Crushed kasoori mehi
1 tbsp roasted cumin powder
Salt as per taste
1/2 tsp garam masala
few fresh leaves of mint  and coriander chopped

Mix this and add chopped chaap pieces in it. and let it marinade, for 30 minutes or if you can do it overnight  , its better.

Once its marinade for good time, you can grill it , or cook it on tawa or open flame , which ever way you prefer.

You can sprinkle lime juice an chat masala on top and have it as it is with onions and green chutney.

But we are making masala so let's make gravy now.

Ingredients :

1 large chopped onion
1 large tomato chopped or half cup tomato puree
2 tbsp green garlic chopped , if not then its totally fine
2 tbsp oil
Whole spices - cinnamon, green cardamom, dry red chilies, bay leaf
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chilies finely chopped
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tbsp cumin coriander powder
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
salt as per taste
1/2 cup whisked yogurt
1/2 tbsp crushed kasoori methi
1 cup soy chaap tikka


Add oil in pan, add whole spices in it and when it becomes fragrant, add onion and cook it till it becomes little brown, add tomato and green garlic if using it and cook till it leaves oil.

Add ginger garlic paste , green chili and powder masala and mix it and cook for 2 minutes.

Add salt and depend upon your like, add water to make the gravy.

Add kasoori methi and soy chaap in it and cook for 2 minutes.

Once done, have it with paratha or rice.

Boil it and mix it nicely

Add yogurt and mix it nicely.

I didn't stop there , I knew next day for lunch for kids I was making paneer kathi rolls  so I saved few to make kathi roll for me.

so in  this difficult time , with one ingredient you can make lot of variation so you can get bored.
