The best way to impress somebody is to make something healthy, unusual and exotic. Now, if such a dish is also easy to prepare, like these Bread Koftas in Pumpkin Curry, it suits you too! Made with whole wheat bread and low-fat curds, these koftas are made healthier by steaming them instead of deep-frying. The mouth-watering gravy too is quite healthy as it is made with vitamin A rich pumpkin instead of fat-laden cream or coconut. The addition of low-fat curds enhances the gravy further with its tang and texture along with calcium.
