Gone are those days when you had to spend half a day in the kitchen preparing kofta curry! With this simple recipe, cooking becomes not only less tedious but also healthier as the kofta are steamed rather than fried. Cook the gravy on a medium flame to avoid burning of spices and onions. Highly recommended for heart patients as it is low in sodium and fat apart from being high in potassium.
