Wash minced meat , squeeze out all water and pat dry. Combine all ingredients under kofta mix well . Apply little oil to your hands and shape the chicken in to small balls. Now heat oil in a pan and fry the koftas till they are crispy outside. Keep them aside and allow it to drain oil on a kitchen paper towel. 

Mean while take the onion cut in to half , Grind half of the onion,ginger ,garlic,1 green chilli,cardamom pods and cinnamon in to a smooth paste. Rest of the onion chop finely. Heat butter in a pan add crushed cumin seeds and bay leaf . Let it splutter now add slit green chilli and chopped onions to this saute well add ground onion paste mix well let the onion get cooked well till raw smell goes away add salt. Add turmeric powder and coriander powder fry till raw smell goes away. Now add chopped tomatoes fry till tomato becomes mushy .Add 1 cup of water and let it cook on medium flame  till oil separates.By now the gravy is thickened to a creamy consistency. Once oil separates add fried kofta balls kofta cook for 2 to 3 minutes more till the gravy gets in to koftas. Check salt. Now crush kasuri methi with both palms and add to the curry. Switch off the flame and add cream mix well. MAke sure koftas do not break while mixing in cream. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Note: when i made the dish i added tomatoes that are halved instead of finely chopped ones. But i prefer adding them finely chopped while making the gravy as it increases the taste.
