Gone are those days when you had to spend half a day in the kitchen preparing kofta curry! With this simple recipe, cooking becomes not only less tedious but also healthier as the kofta are steamed rather than fried.

Cook the gravy on a medium flame to avoid burning of spices and onions. Highly recommended for heart patients as it is low in sodium and fat apart from being high in potassium.

Serve with rotis or rice .

Fantastic but I bake the kofta s after steaming and then fry them in nonstick pan. Also put some almond powder when shaping into balls. Thanks

I tried this recipe. and there is nothing left in the kadhai ! it was so good to taste and guilt free. noone even realized that koftas are not fried! one addition from my side, steaming koftas in microwave worked well for me.
