Please can someone let me have a Malai Kofta recipe that works?

I've tried literally dozens of recipes off the web and none of them hit the mark.

This dish reminds me of many happy visits to India and I'd love to get it right. I remember it as a lightly spiced dumpling with a deep rich nutty creamy gravy but when I cook it the dumplings just dissolve and the gravy tastes of wallpaper paste.

1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red-chilli powder
1/2 tsp cardammom powder
Salt To Taste
3 tbsp cooking oil/ghee(clarified butter)
Oil for frying the koftas
For the gravy:
2 medium onions,chopped
3 flakes garlic,crushed
1 inch ginger,crushed
3 large tomatoes,pureed
1 tsp red-chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp dhania(corainder) powder

How to make malai koftha :

Mix all the other ingredients for the kofta into a paste.
Make rounds of the potato dough and place a little of the prepared mixture in the center of each round.
Seal the edges and shape into stuffed rounds. Deep fry each kofta till golden brown. Drain and keep aside.
Blend together the onions, ginger, garlic and the poppy seeds and fry in 3 tbsp of oil till brown and the oil begins to seperate.
Add the pureed tomatoes and the masala powders.
Add the sugar and the ground peanuts.
The gravy will begin to thicken.
You can also add some malai to thicken it some more.
Mix in some water if necessary.
When the gravy comes to a boil, add the koftas.
Heat through and serve the malai kofta.
Note: In this malai kofta receipe , the koftas should be put in just before eating the dish or else they will turn soggy.
