Veg Kofta

Kofta in the simplest form means balls made from minced meat or meatloaf.There are different varieties of kofta that can be made -veg or non veg.

I make this veg Kofta’s whenever I don’t have meat at home.It’s always good to enjoy more veggies in your meal.You can add as many vegetables you want to add in this veg kofta like beans capsicum carrots.I have added here onions,capsicum and beans.It’s always good to try something new and replace your usual veg curry with something different like Kofta’s.
