Rich Kofta curry

This is again one of the recipes from the '30 minute curries.' The recipe called for chicken koftas but i already had with me store-bought meat balls which i used for this. Came out great with a tangy flavour which both of us liked.

Koftas- 6 or 7 beef meatballs
Onion- 1, sliced lengthwise
Garlic paste- 1 tsp
Green chillies- 2, slit lenghtwise
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Turmeric pwd- /4 tsp
Tomato- 1, sliced into cubes
Coconut milk- 1/2 cup
Plain yoghurt- 3 tbs
Coriander leaves- to garnish
Oil- 1 tbs
Salt- to taste

Heat oil in a pan and sautee the onions, chillies and garlic for about 5 minutes or till the mixture starts to thicken. Add the garam masala and turmeric pwd and sautee for another 3 minutes. To this, add the coconut milk and yoghurt and gently bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and add the chopped tomatoes, koftas and salt required. Cook stirring occasionally till the koftas are cooked through. Stir in coriander leaves and serve.
Notes: There were ground almonds (4 tbs) and whipping cream (4 tbs) used in the original recipe, but i omitted them. If using, add along with the yoghurt and coconut milk.
Make sure you don't over do the salt, since the tangy flavour is a bit overpowering already
