Extremely soft koftas that melt in your mouth, dipped in a creamy tomato-flavoured gravy that soothes and cradles your taste buds, that is what the malai kofta curry is! the mouth-melting koftas are made of fresh coconut and potatoes rather than the more common paneer-based koftas, and the gravy too is a class apart as it is neither bland nor too spicy, combining cream and tomato in a well-balanced proportion.
