Vegetable Kofta in Red Gravy

Vegetable kofta is a hugely popular dish on Indian restaurant menus all over the world.  probably because making it is a labor of love and takes time and effort. If you wish to experience a mouthful of Indian flavor, Kofta is a great choice. Though Kofta ranks as one of the most favored delectable Indian dishes, the dish is considered Middle East and South Asian cuisine for that matter.

The koftas in this dish can be made with Vegetables such as cabbage, Lauki (Bottle gourd), Carrot, mix veggies. It makes a great meal when served with Lachcha paratha or Jeera Rice!!! The fragrance of homemade Garam masala, Ohh I loved it so much......The perfect blend of spices and vegetables in this Curry are so delicious to eat!!! Hubby Enjoyed this delicious Curry with hot hot lachcha parathas.....One, Two...Ohhhh Third one also he had it ;) ....Prisha asked me...Mom which type of paratha is this??? hahahahha....She was wondering that what layers are there in this paratha.....I said her this is soooooo Yummyyyy Paratha...and she had it with her favorite ketch up and some amount of this curry which has no red chili powder...I always keep some amount of any curry or daal without chili for her, And I really appreciate that she never say No to any veggies....So with this happy ending of dinner, check out the step by step recipe here:
