With Malai Kofta, it is always celebration time! This is one dish which nobody will get bored of even if it is served at every party.
The koftas themselves are so tasty that they can easily be served as a snack along with tea. You could microwave or shallow fry the koftas if you want to avoid deep-frying them.
Also do try other variants of koftas like Nawabi Kesar Koftas , Palak Makai Kofta and Doodhi Kofta Curry .
