“Biryani”, when you hear this magical what comes to your mind? If you visualise fragrant rice smeared in mouth watering spices along with chicken, mutton, egg or veggies, then you are not the only one.

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). There are shrimp and fish koftas too, found mainly in coastal regions of India.
Depending on where in world you are, you may find Kofta made as dry balls or can be with gravy (generally served with rice).

Recently I became active on Instagram and I get to see lot of exciting posts. One thing which caught my attention was the idea of trying out new things which require baking. Initially I thought I will bake a Pizza with my own twist and I started looking for Pizza baking stone, and found this one from Hans Grill, I must add its absolutely a piece of beauty. In any case, I ordered this baking stone and when it arrived, I was happy chirpy bird (Who does not like new gadgets in kitchen?)! When I decided to bake my pizza, my girl said she wants to eat something different, so I thought let me give a twist to something she loves. She loves Paneer Patties , so this time I decided to make “Paneer Tikka Parcels” (पनीर टिक्का पार्सल), and this was something new for her as well, and I was assured that she will love it.
