Kofta, its a ball made up of minced stuffing mixed with spices. In its simplest form Kofta is primarily made of minced meat, however in Indian subcontinent, for the vegetarians, its mainly filled with Paneer or Lauki (Bottle Gourd).

Depending on where in world you are, you may find Kofta made as dry balls or can be with gravy (generally served with rice).
Its a long time that I have shared any recipe and I was wondering what shall I share this time around, I thought why not share something which I made recently.
I had some excess yogurt at home and I had bought Spinach to make Palak Paneer, but when I asked my partner if he fancies having palak paneer, he did not sound too excited about it.

I can use my spinach and lastly it gives me a good meal too.
Indian food is full of flavours and no secret that it offers so much of variety that if you decide to eat a new dish every day, you won’t get chance to repeat same dish in years to come.
