The very word 'makhani' brings to our mind a rich gravy with lots of butter and cream! However, you will be pleasantly surprised to know that the same magical impact can be created in a healthy fashion by using low-fat milk.
The vibrant, red-coloured kofta used in this delightful dish is made using beetroot and carrot, which not only add colour to this subzi but also pool in nutrients like vitamin A, fiber and folic acid.
The koftas are not deep-fried but steamed, totally eliminating the need for oil in this recipe. The Kofta Makhani does take a little time to prepare, but surely worth the effort.
Indeed, this is a homely and satiating treat that you will thoroughly enjoy, when had with a bowl of hot rice or a few phulkas .
