In a separate bowl, take 1/2 cup paneer(mash and make it smooth),chopped cashew pieces,chopped raisins, saffron(soaked in 1/2 tsp of warm milk),cardamom powder,pepper powder and pinch of salt and mix well.-filling
Take a small portion from the mixture and flatten it and then stuff it with a small ball made with the filling and then roll and make round balls from it.
Alternately you can mix everything together and form balls.
Roll the balls in dry corn flour/rice flour and then dust off the extra corn flour. Heat oil in a deep pan and deep fry the koftas till golden in colour. Drain on a tissue paper and keep aside.

For gravy:
Boil  the tomatoes and then grind with 2 green chilies and ginger. Soak cashew nuts in warm water for 15 minutes and then drain the water and grind cashews to make a smooth paste. Heat 2 tbsp oil+1tbsp of butter in a pan and add bay leaves,cinnamon and a pinch of fenugreek seeds and fry for few seconds .Now add tomato puree and cook for approx 2-3 minutes, partially cover the pan with a lid to avoid splattering. Then add turmeric,chili powder,cardamom powder,clove powder(or 2 cloves) and cashew paste. Mix well and saute till the oil start seperating from the sides of the pan.
