Malai kofta

Malai kofta can be a delicious addition to a get-together day menu. I make this when I have more guests who pick the vegetarian option. Usually I make a big batch of kofta and put them in the freezer. Comes in handy many a times. The gravy has a rich and creamy texture not very spicy though. Try this with chapathi or nan and you are sure to love it

This is what u'll need....

Potatoes 2 big
Paneer 1/4 cup
