Add zest to life with this bone-strengthening treat! With a bouquet of healthy ingredients including curds, fenugreek, spinach and kabuli chana, the Chana Kofta Kadhi gives your meal a protein and calcium boost.
Many are unaware of the fact that excess fat hinders the absorption of calcium, so deep-frying the koftas would make the dish less effective than it can be!
That is the reason why we have steamed the koftas and not deep-fried them, so you can be assured of maximum nutrient uptake.
