Make a note of the tomato gravy used in this recipe, as it is a versatile base that combines well with a wide range of veggies and koftas. However, serving the gravy with these special doodhi koftas gives it a healthy twist because they are steamed and not deep-fried. The Baked Doodhi Kofta Curry is loaded with iron and folic acid, and is a wonderful food for mothers-to-be and young kids too.
