About

Malai Kofta- A very well known mughlai dish.Mughlai food is characterized by rich and creamy curry which have a distinct aroma and taste of ground and whole spices. This Super soft raisin stuffed cottage cheese dumplings in a rich creamy tomato gravy, a main course dish paired along with crispy roti/ nan, basmati rice with some salad. Some gravies especially mughlai dishes like these are meant to be made in its traditional way to really enjoy it. I have given down two different methods : low fat version by baking kofta's in oven, also the original version of deep frying them, and cooking it in heavy cream.
