Koftas add zing to the zero oil palak rice. Try making these soft and tasty koftas with low-fat paneer and palak. Not only palak, but low-fat paneer is also a health booster as it contains protein, calcium and vitamin A. Steaming the koftas instead of deep-frying not only slashes down the fat content but also helps to make them soft.
- Keep 2½ cups of water for boiling in a deep non-stick pan.
- Heat a pressure cooker on a medium flame, and when hot, add the cumin seeds and dry roast on a medium flame for 30 seconds.

- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Separate each grain of rice lightly using a fork. Keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside.
- Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into an even sized round.
- Steam the koftas in a steamer for 7 to 8 minutes. Keep aside.
- Pour the hot palak rice into a serving plate.
