Whenever we go to a restaurant or a dinner party, the rich and creamy kofta curry always holds a special place on the menu! The kofta is one dish that has a rich culinary history, rooted in our country. Thanks to the Mughal Empire, we were introduced to this elegant and delicious dish and ever since then, we have incorporated it into our cuisine with our own style. Deep-fried koftas are cooked in tomato-onion gravy with plenty of spices to give us the kofta curry we know and love. Traditionally, koftas were made using meat but we have managed to tweak this delicious recipe so that vegetarians can enjoy it as well! That’s why we bring a delicious veg kofta recipe that will make you drool, and it is aloo kofta! With the goodness of the beloved potato, this velvety veg kofta can be paired with lachcha paratha or pulao.
