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 .

I tried the same, Kofta was very good. But while preparing gravy, please make sure that you fry all the paste properly else it would result in smell of Onion.

Very tasty recipe. Though I wanted to ask, why do certain koftas like lauki kofta turn out hard? Especially from inside? They''re not soft enough. Please can you decipher the reason?
