For the gravy:

1. Thoroughly mix all the kofta ingredients and divide this into 10 equal balls and set aside.
2. Fry the bay leaves, cloves, cardamoms and cumin seeds in hot ghee in a heavy bottomed pan till aromatic.
3. Add the ginger-garlic pastes and the grated onions and fry for about 4 minutes or till the onions are golden brown. Add all the spice powders and fry for a few more seconds.
4. Add the pureed tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes.
5. Pour the chicken stock, salt and sugar to taste. Bring to a boil.
6. Now add the chicken kofta balls one by one and shake the pan gently to stir (do not use a ladle to stir as it may break the koftas). Cook over the low heat for about 20 minutes or till the meat balls are cooked thorough and the curry thickens.
7. Put off the heat and stir in the fresh cream.
8. Garnish with a swirl of fresh cream and finely chopped coriander leaves.
9. Serve with plain rice, roti or ghee rice.

Tip: As a variation, the koftas can be deep fried in hot oil till golden brown and added to the cooked gravy just before serving.
