“Malai kofta” is a very popular recipe in all over India.Malai means cream while kofta means balls made with grated cottage cheese or paneer and with or without mashed potatoes,which are deep fried in oil. A rich and sweet gravy with some mild spices. But gluten free is something extra.. i am trying to alter some ingredients.Like i added curd instead of cream.(Curd made by low fat skimmed milk),and my dumplings are made by gram flour,sauted in less oil.You can also bake the dumplings.And my gravy was cooked in coconut oil.Some healthy changes..which was good enough to taste. lets move to the recipe.
