Easy to make but superlatively delicious, this kadhi plays perfect host to delectable, non-fried, methi-flavoured koftas.

These unique koftas are made with flours of multiple grains, perked up with lemon juice and ginger-green chilli paste. The koftas are steamed and not deep-fried, so they will not aggravate acidity.

Neither the koftas nor the kadhi is spicy, so this dish is quite stomach-friendly. Serve the Methi Koftas in Kadhi for lunch along with any stomach friendly roti .

kofta in kadhi is very pleasant and a smooth gravy.. The koftas are perfectly spiced and cooked.. The minimal oil used to make this recipe, makes it more healthy.
