Food Diary: Kofta
Kofta is a generic term for a dumpling, typically used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. In India, I found that most kofta is made from potatoes and paneer. In nearly every vegetarian restaurant in the country, Malai Kofta is on the menu. This is a potato ball served in a cream sauce made by heating milk then letting it cool and skimming the hardened skin off the top. Paneer is typically added, making this a tasty curry. Other variations use the addition of coconut milk or nuts or nut paste. This is one of the great Indian dishes.
Recipe This seems ok from a quick read. I'd suggest adding Malai to the sauce to make it thick and creamy. Yum.
