  1. i love this recipe.. some of the malai kofta recipes are very difficult to make.. but this one seems easy.. 🙂 I’ll definitely try this 🙂 I have a doubt… The malai kofta that we get in restaurants is white in color and sweetish… so i don’t think they must be using tomatoes for gravy.. isn’t it ??what do they use ??
