Malai Kofta

Koftas are in my long pending post list and finally got the time to make malai koftas today for my breakfast as a side dish for the rotis. I used freshly made paneer using full fat cream milk and the koftas tasted amazing.

This dish is indeed a kid/toddler friendly recipe as it has the subtle taste of the spice powders along with potatoes, bread crumbs and paneer (cottage cheese).

Here is a list of snack recipes from my blog - do check it out for easy peasy steps:

Prepare koftas with the rest of the mix.

Once the oil gets heated, gently add the koftas.

Cook for 4-5 mins on medium flame.
