Cooking fried kofta / balls in a rich gravy is an old school Bengali delicacy. I guess everybody loves to eat fried balls made with paneer, vegetables, chicken, fish, mutton etc, but after soaking them in a flavouful gravy they become scrumptious. I had some fish fillets in my fridge and couldn't find any better idea than this to use them. Process of making 'Kofta Curry' is tricky and little bit of time consuming, but trust me, the combo of those gravy soaked dumplings with some steamed rice is just heavenly.
