  • Mix well and form into small oval shapes.

  • Heat ghee in a heavy saucepan, add the dried milk, sugar, remaining yoghurt, garam masala and salt.

  • Fry in the ghee, then add half cup hot water.

  • Bring to the boil and add the koftas.

  • Simmer, covered until no liquid remains.

  • Turn koftas over, add half cup more hot water and the pepper, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed once more.

  • Sprinkle the dish with cardamom and serve with Indian breads or rice.

  • Cover after adding cardamom so its fragrance will not dissipate.
